I'm looking for an ideally automated process to create custom fields and assigning them to issue types for JIRA 6.1. As right now we can't easily upgrade to JIRA 7 (I believe newer REST API versions have methods for creating custom fields), any suggestions? Code/scripts would be fine, but would want to avoid writing a plugin.
We are also a cost effective way to migrate configuration between environments (UAT/production) and found Botron's Configuration Manager, but cost is relatively high. Are there any alternatives?
You can do the whole thing programatically, although the API changed between 6 and 7, so you need to bear that in mind.
Creating CFs is simple (com.atlassian.jira.bc.customfield.CustomFieldService#validateCreate), assigning them to projects/issue types is via com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.config.manager.FieldConfigSchemeManager#updateFieldConfigScheme
(that's JIRA 7, 6 is similar)
