That is what I said, yes.
However, if you want to do tasks and sub-tasks at the same time, then you need a different approach. You won't have a list of tasks with existing JIRA ids, so in your CSV, you need to show which is going to be the parent. I wrote it up at https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/12280942 although the documentation for import says something very similar now.
You can configure your CSV file with the following columns.
IssueKey, Summary, Description, DueDate, Estimatedtime(Seconds), ParentKey.
IssueKey - Is the key to identify the Issue(Story, Task, Defect any other which we can map in same CSV File as parentKey)
ParentKey - Can be blank, reference IssueKey from Same CSV File or issue key(ABC-123) in your JIRA Project.
EstimatedTime - Convert to Seconds (For smooth import)
While importing issues to JIRA, you need to map CSV File Headings(Columns) with JIRA Issue Field Names.
IssueKey --> IssueId or IssueKey
ParentKey --> ParentID
Before you start importing, verify the data import.
If any errors you can correct and import again.
Don't forget to save your mapping columns as "Configuration File" which you can use later with same format of CSV file.
I have multiple projects that use variations of the same base workflow. The variations depend on the requirements of the project or issue type. The variations mostly come in the form of new statuses ...
