Ordering subtasks with JIRA import

Right now when I import a csv file with subtasks, the subtasks are not ordered as they are in the csv file. What does JIRA use (which field) for the ordering of subtasks when importing from csv or how can I override the ordering on import?

You need to have in your CSV file two more columns. One would be 'Issue_ID' and the other 'Parent_ID'.

In all standard issues (no sub-tasks) you can put a sequence from 1 to n numbers into the column 'Issue_ID', and in the case of Subtasks, you need to leave the 'Issue ID' column blank and put in the 'Parent_ID' column the value of the 'Issue _ID' column that is in the parent issue.

Look into the attachment in this issue of Jira Importers Plugin
