Currently (in AtoM 2.5 and earlier), the qubitParentSlug column in the accessions CSV template allows a user to link an accession record to an existing description. The code for making this relation can be seen here:

However, in AtoM an accession can be linked to many descriptions, while this CSV column currently only accepts one slug and cannot be piped. Attempts to pipe the value lead to the entire field value being understood as a single slug, and when no match is found, no relations are created.

This wishlist ticket is to make the qubitParentSlug column capable of accepting multiple slug values, separated by pipes, so users can link an accession to more than one description on import if desired.
