In JIRA Rest API, is there any way to get a hyperlink of the issue after creating it?

After we create the issue using REST, we receive link in a response. but that link(self) points to JSON issue information and not the direct bug link in JIRA.

I want to get the direct link of JIRA issue which I can open in browser. I know that I can assume the format and prepare the link (since we get the created issue id in response) as follows: https://domain.atlassian.net/browse/ABC-123 where ABC-123 is an issue id.

But I was wondering if there is any other resource in API, using which I can directly get above link?

You can create a custom  html based field in JIRA  and associate it with all issues. You will develop this field to get the issue id and create your url. You can then use the JIRA rest api to get  whatever link you want via a get issue call  with explicit parameters to narrow the scope of what you are looking for. Check this out for some documentation in how to narrow your scope when using  the get an issue command: https://docs.atlassian.com/jira/REST/latest/#api/2/issue.

This way a link will be available for all issues now and available through a robust api. Hope this make sense.
