Can we have a url so that some one can navigate directly to create an issue with pre populated values like epic, title etc.?

Can we have a url so that some one can navigate directly to create an issue with pre populated values like epic, title etc.?

We wanted to provide a link for our application from where user directly navigates to create file an issue. That issue should have some pre populated fields which are read only.

Can we achieve this in some way?

Maybe something like this:

<yourjirahost>/secure/CreateIssueDetails!init.jspa?pid=10000&issuetype=1&summary=&priority=1&duedate=14%2FAug%2F14&assignee=-1&environment=test&description=<p>test<%2Fp>

You sould fill proper issue type and project id. As for the other fields - they should exist on the screen and you should know direct format that is used (i.e. for epic it is "key:PRJ-1" - something like that)

Thanks Alexey,

Just one more question, is there a way in which we can hide fields we do not want the user to enter when he creates issue using the url.

if you mean fields in common - you can remove them from creation screen. If you mean prepopulated fields (so user will not be able to change pre-populated value) - either you should develop your own fields that will not accept user change, either create some "hack" with javascript to hide unneeded fields. You can place that javascript into custom field, some web item or even announcement banner.
