Is there an easy way to retrieve the issueid from a jira issue just created?

I am using C# and rest sharp to create a jira issue of  issue type test and would like to get the issueID back for the issue I just created.  Is there someway of doing that by pulling it out of the response?  Or what is the easiest way of doing it, ideally without having to do a new query to query the issue just created.

 

Thanks.

The response of the create issue call already had the issue id in it. Following is a sample json response:

{
    "id": "10000",
    "key": "TST-24",
    "self": "http://www.example.com/jira/rest/api/2/issue/10000"}

You can extract the "id" from it.
