How do I dry run creating an issue? Edited

I am using Jira Cloud's REST API to create an issue. I want to do a dry run before actually making the call.

Does Jira Cloud's REST API currently support this? I couldn't find it online.



Thanks for the answers, but the exact details behind this question is that I need to create issues on my clients' Jira. I cannot mandate a separate Jira project / dev environment just to test on.

Hi @James Jung

not that I know of, unless you want to use:

1. a test project

2. a staging or dev instance 

where you'd create your issue.

As @Krisztian Kovacs  suggested dry run for API's are currently not supported. But you can always create a development instance. Please have look at this page, this will help you setup development instance -

the simplest answer is what @James Jung said; create a test project. I have one I test workflows on. Only I can see it. It also makes moving a new workflow into a project easy.
