The store manager doesn't ask for the Parent ID of a category when importing using a scv file.
How is this handled? Do I have to change the category's Name in the csv to include the parent i.e. Fruit|Bananas?
Please note that I need to issue specific IDs for the categories as opposed to getting an auto-incremented one by the system.

Thank you for your post.
Yes, there is no need to specify the parent category ID, as the Store Manager takes into a count only the last category from the path.
That means that "Bananas" category id is "3"
Your .csv file must contain all category paths, like:
ID 1;Home - (Home id is "1")
ID 2;Home|Fruit - (Fruit ID is "2")
ID 3; Home|Fruit|Bananas - (Bananas ID is "3").
Also please note that if you use the Category ID as identifier, you can only update the existing categories. A new categories will not be created.
