How do I get a URL that creates an issue of a certain type in a certain project?

I frequently need to send these to others to help them through the JIRA maze we have.

This is how I do it:

  1. Middle-click 'Create' button, and go to the new tab, which contains just the Project and Issue Type fields.
  2. Hover over a field, edit the page HTML (right-click and 'Inspect' in Chrome), find the <form> element and change method='post' to method='get'.
  3. Submit the form with the desired project and issue type.
  4. The URL will now contain all the needed details. Delete the formToken and atl_token parameters.

Thank you. I found I was able to peal off the tokens, etc. just keeping the project and issue type. Wouldn't it be nice if there were a button to get such a link?

It would be even nicer if the URL had project and issuetype parameters in it by default. There's no reason that first form should be a POST, as it doesn't modify server state.
