If you're assigning the CSV data to variables already, you should be able to assign them to custom fields using a dictionary.  The custom fields in my example are text fields, but this logic should work. You'll want to replace the customfield_ID with the IDs from your environment.


from jira import JIRA

jira_options={'server': 'http://example.com'}

<Your existing code for importing data from CSV>

issue_dict = {
'project': {'id': <project_id>},
'summary': 'New issue from python script',
'description': 'Your description here',
'issuetype': {'name': 'Bug'},
'customfield_10400': variable1
'customfield_10401': variable2
'customfield_10402': variable3

new_issue = jira.create_issue(fields=issue_dict)

thank you for your answer , but the link your sent to me doesn't help that much in my case

The REST API is the way to do this, but we can't really help you with the Python.  Have a look in Python resources for "how do I make a REST call to another system from my Python code"
