Behaviours create issue get future id

No, you don't get an issue ID until after the "create issue initially" post-function runs.

You could try to display the next free number in the project with Behaviours, I think, but you'd need to warn your users that it could well be wildly inaccurate by the time its been rendered.  If your issue churn is quite low or spread out, it would be moderately accurate most of the time.

Just like I thought. Thanks for clarification.
