For those make sure to wrap the value in double quotes.
Use double-quote marks (

Summary, Description, Status "Login fails", "This is on a new line", Open
Does this method from the documentation actually work for people? It does not seem to work for me. "Import from CSV" for Jira Cloud still eats newlines. There is an open bug for both Cloud and Server:
