Direct link to create issue: error The issue type selected is invalid.


I need to create a direct link to the issue creation form, but can't get it right.

I've tested with this URL with my project ID and standard issue type ID:


And with another issue type ID I found in the HTML code:


Both result in the error at the top of the form:

issuetype: The issue type selected is invalid.

How can I get my link to work?

issuetype should be the integer key of your issue type; are you sure that 1 is a valid ID? That doesn't sound right; our IDs are >= 10000 across the board. Visit https://<JIRA_INSTANCE>/secure/admin/ViewIssueTypes.jspa , find your request type, and hover over the Edit link to get its ID.

Thanks Payne!

The URL /secure/admin/ViewIssueTypes.jspa did not work ("Your operation is taking longer than usual"), but indeed starting at 10000 I had some results and found the searched ID at 10007 :)
