Can I import new field values to already created issues?

I would like to import new field values into already created Issues.  I can tie them to the Issue ID.  Is there anyway to do this?

You can import a CSV using the JIRA Importers plugin (included in JIRA). If you include the key and summary of an issue that already exists you will update that issue instead of creating a new one.

If you had an issue, TEST-123 with a description of apple, and you imported the following CSV:

Sample CSV:

key, summary, description
TEST-123, Fruit, Banana

The description of TEST-123 would now be Banana.
