Issue HTML creation link assigning to @me?

Hi there,

working on JIRA v5.1.8 i am trying to create a issue by HTMl hyperlink.

Everything works fine, but i can't figure out how to set the assignee to the
currently used user? Is there a shortcut like @me or something like that?

I would appreciate if you can give me a hint on that.

Best regards,
Marc

How are you creating the issue via HTML Hyperlink? Can you show us how? And what do you mean by "to the currently used user?"

My cgi script generates content for a JIRA issue which is then created by a user clicking on a link looking like something like that:

http://0.0.0.0/secure/CreateIssueDetails!init.jspa?pid=<ProductId>&components=<Component1>&components=<Component2>&assignee=<Assignee>&environment=Sample+Environment&duedate=07.12.2015&issuetype=<IssueType>&customfield_10300=<CustomfieldInput>&reporter=<Reporter>&timetracking=<Value>&priority=<Priority>&summary=This+is+a+sample+summary&description=Sample+Description%0AWow+a+line+break

Documentation: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRAKB/Creating+Issues+via+direct+HTML+links

I can now define the assignee parameter as mwe (which is me) but i need to define it in a way that uses the currently logged in user. For example: another user calls the issue creation link and so he has to be the assignee.


You will have to update your script so that it will programatically get the current user and build the html link first before applying it in the href link.

There is no way for fetching the current user because the script is not running in/on Jira - that's the reason why i use the HTML link interface. There has to be a way to define that, i am sure about that. Can i contact the JIRA devs?

Hello @Marc Weickenmeier

did you find a solution for this "Assign to me" setting through HTML link?

Thank you and BR
