Set current logged in user when creating a ticket from URL?

I would like the current logged in user to be set when creating a ticket from a url.

e.g.:!init.jspa?pid=15005&issuetype=1&labels=build-reliability&priority=2&description=CI SPY: spec: spec/controllers/activities_controller_spec.rb

How can I do that?

Hi @Gustavo Matias

I am unsure and doubt this is possible. The way I see it, there are 2 ways to go about this:

  1. Allow JIRA automatically set the reporter via a post-function using the assign to current user post-function (recommended):

  2. Use a rest API for issue creation and JIRA would normally automatically set this.

Hope this helps.

@Ismael Jimoh for some reason that didn't work. It does work when creating the ticket from within JIRA, but the use case here is when creating through the create issue details url I posted above. any ideas?

I am not sure why it fails but to reduce point of error fix the white space before summary.

I have seen rest calls fail due to white spaces in the URL. So let us rule this out first.

Secondly if the issue is successfully created please make sure you place the post function after the create event else it may fail.
