JIRA Python Script - read csv for "description" field - how to show as table in description field. Edited

I am quite new on both jira and python.

i have a python script to create jira issue.

I am importing a table from csv; to jira issue "description"


f = open("data.csv","r")
new_issue = jira.create_issue(
project     =   'TEST'    
summary     =   'New issue from jira-python',    
description =,    
issuetype   =   {'name''Issue'}    )


It is setting the values as Comma-separated values in jira issue.

How do i format it, to show as table?

Please advise. Thank you.

about formatting I do recommend to read the wiki-style render of Jira.
