Importing data to a cascading selection field

We are importing data from our old internally developed defect tracking system to JIRA.

I have created a cascading selection field for one of the data types in JIRA.

Does anyone know how to set up the data in the .csv file so that it populates both the primary field and the secondary field of the cascading selection, please?

For example, I have a value in the primary field called 'Legacy' and a value in the secondary field called 'Code Improvement'. I would like to import data marked in the old tool as 'Code Improvement' by setting 'Legacy - Code Improvement' in the JIRA field.

Just found

https://studio.atlassian.com/browse/JIM-231

which says it is not possible to import to a cascading select field using .csv files.

Sorry to have bothered you folks :-)

I don't know how to do it via CSV import, but the script runner can import cf values for cascading selects, just by indenting them in the input: https://studio.plugins.atlassian.com/wiki/display/GRV/Built-In+Scripts#Built-InScripts-BulkImportCustomFieldValues

May be helpful.
