Hope you are doing well. I was asked to create a Confiform that creates new Jira issues. The form should have a dropdown select field that allows users to select from a list of existing Fix Version/Release of a project. The Release Date should automatically be mapped to the Jira issue's end date.
I was told that because the Fix Version information are still being updated (e.g., new releases, renames, new dates, etc.), the Confiform should dynamically retrieve the latest Fix Version information and populate the dropdown field with this information when a user fills out the form. The user should see the latest selection of Fix Versions to select. When the user submits the form, Confiform creates a Jira issue with the selected Fix Version and the corresponding Release Date as the issue's End Date.
I have been unable to find any guidance on how to automatically retrieve the Fix Version information and populate a Confiform field. Please let me know if there is a way of doing what was asked.
Hi @Hanyu Huang and welcome to this community
You can set up ConfiForms field to read values directly from Jira - an example on how to approach that could be found here https://wiki.vertuna.com/display/TEST/Building+a+dropdown+field+in+ConfiForms+backed+by+webservice+call+to+Jira+Rest+API+-+createmeta
Thank you for your help. It appears that our organization does not allow non-administrators access to the webservice function. We are not allowed access to the Atlassian Marketplace either. Is there a way to achieving the goal of retrieving Jira project information only with the default fields available?
You will need to create a web-service connection (it could still use the application links as auth method)
You can open a support ticket with us at https://wiki.vertuna.com/display/VERTUNA/Support+Request+Form
and we can discuss this with your administrators (there is literally nothing to worry and nothing "more" to "open")
