How to create new Issue in Jira Plugin ?

I found this method :


ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager().createIssueObject(user, issue);

 whereas issue is the issue to be created.

So I have problems to create this issue, because Issue and MutableIssue are both interfaces.

You could do 

MutableIssue issueNew = new MutableIssue{...} // implement about 100 Methods :( 

The other way would be with a map .

ApplicationUser user = ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getLoggedInUser();
Map<String,Object> map = new HashMap<>();
map.put("Summary","My Summary");
// and all the other fields..
Issue createdIssue = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager().createIssueObject(user,map);

 I am not happy with all these approaches. For example I do not exactly know what key to put in the map. Is it the same as the label you see next to the fields in the ticket ?

Hello @Albert Cameron 

you can try with issueFactory


import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def issueFactory = ComponentAccessor.getIssueFactory()
def issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager()
def userManager = ComponentAccessor.getUserUtil()

def currentUserObj = ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getLoggedInUser();

MutableIssue newissue
newissue = issueFactory.getIssue()

//set values
newissue.reporter = issue.getReporter()

def newIssueCreated = issueManager.createIssueObject(currentUserObj, newissue)


I hope it helps.


Best regards.

IssueInputParameters issueIP = build.getIssueIP();

final IssueService.CreateValidationResult createValidationResult = issueService.validateCreate(user, issueIP);


Yeah thanks.

There is also a class IssueInputParameters. Which also is usefull for setting CustomFields.

Hello  @Albert Cameron ,

Correct. You can use also IssueInputParamenters.

 Best regards.

If using issueFactory. Is there also a way to add customFields ?

Yes, there is.

After creating the issue, this new issue is a "normal mutable Issue".

So you can use the typical way to update it. 

For example this.

Best regards.
