You'd probably import the data into JIRA using the CSV format and setup the Service Desks as needed. You'll then get your users to create Service Desk accounts using the same username as in your previous application.

And that should be it.

can you please point me in the direction of how to load CSV and what format the data needs to be in. is there a knowledge article on this. is the Csv import only accessible from the CLI ?  how do i get access to the cli ?
