Creating a new project using JIRA REST API also creates new workflow scheme and screen scheme



When I create a new project using JIRA REST API, a new workflow scheme and screen scheme is also created.


But I would like to use a default workflow scheme instead of creating a new one when a new project is created using JIRA rest API.


So can anyone help me to achieve this goal?

  2. This workaround, which suggests it is possible to create a project with shared configuration (which is how you'd do it in Jira directly)

There is a suggestion outstanding for doing it via shared configuration - see

Your solution works with Jira Server, but what happens with Jira Cloud ?

What solution do you recommend ? 


Thank by advance for your answer.
