How can I show the modal "Create Issue" screen on a transition?

I am trying to add a transistion to our JSD workflow that shows a button, in the issue view, that says "Create Issue" and when the SD agent clicks this it prompts them with a create issue screen. They would then have to select the appropriate project and issue type.


I see this [creating issues via links |]

But I can't figure out how to utlize that in a post function.


Or is the proper way of doing this creating shared fields, and using a create-linked issue post function? What stinks about that solution is that I don't want the description of the problem in some weird field on the JSD issue...

You can't do it in a post-function.  They have no relationship with the front-end of JIRA whatsoever.  They are chunks of code that run on the server as part of a transition.

So, that takes you back to the issue view (i.e. not part of a transition), where you could use a web-fragment or (horrid) javascript to add such a button and kick off the issue create screen with some pre-filled parameters.

Ah ok. Makes sense. Is ScriptRunner the only way of adding said web-fragments?
