JIRA URL to pass in a value to a field


  Within the JIRA's URL, is there anyway to pass a parameter and value to the URL so that it fills in a field?

  My end goal is that when someone creates a JIRA, the "Labels" is already filled in.

  We have multiple departments using the same JIRA instance. If we can have the label auto-filled, then it's easy to sort out who can handle the JIRA. Users are usually fairly lazy in filling out everything.


  Right now we have

https://<our compnay url>/secure/CreateIssue.jspa?pid=14205&issuetype=3 , which auto selects the project and the issue type. I really would like to fill in more fields.

I already tried &labels=New, didn't work. The page still shows labels as blank.

oh ok, worked for me though..

you have the Field Labels in your create issue screen?

When viewing he page source, I can find this


<div class="field-group aui-field-labelpicker" >
<label for="labels">Labels</label>

<fieldset class="hidden labelpicker-params">
<input type="hidden" title="id" value="labels">
<div class="ajs-multi-select-placeholder textarea long-field"></div>
<select class="multi-select long-field hidden edit-labels-inline" id="labels" multiple="multiple" name="labels">
<div class="description">Begin typing to find and create labels or press down to select a suggested label.</div>




The Name of the labels is definitely labels, so I don't know what else is required to reference it.
