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'}
jira=JIRA(options=jira_options,basic_auth=('username','password'))

<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)

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"
