Create new issue on specific kanban column? using API V2 Edited

Hi, i'dlike to create a new issue using the API on a specific custom column in a board, first checking if the column exists, then creating the column if not.


With the current parameters it only creates in the first column (Inbox).

issue_dict = {'project': {'id': id},

'issuetype': {'id': issue_type},

'summary': title, 'description': desc, }


In the docs   i can't find the correct parameter.

hello @lucasrabaca .

On creation, the issue will always be in the first status of your workflow. Even if you create it from the API.

What you are looking for is the fast-track mechanism:


  1. you create a transition between the first status and the destination
  2. you can add a condition to make it invisible to your users
  3. then after the creation using the API, you also do a transition, using this newly created transition.
