Before JIRA 6.2, newly created projects use the Default Issue Type Scheme. After JIRA 6.2 all new projects are created with a new Issue Type Scheme, Workflow and Screen Scheme. This requires a lot of task as the users have to change the assigned schemes and then delete the new ones. In order to avoid creating new issue type schemes, "JIRA Classic" or "Project Management" project type must be selected so that the Default Issue Type would then be used. 

  • $JIRAURL/rest/project-templates/1.0/templates as the Request URL
  • include the arguments below:
    • projectTemplateWebItemKey : com.atlassian.jira-legacy-project-templates:jira-blank-item
    • projectTemplateModuleKey : com.atlassian.jira-legacy-project-templates:jira-blank-item
    • name : project_name
    • key : PROJECTKEY
    • lead : project_lead
    • keyEdited: false

An example of working cURL command on JIRA 6.4.14:

curl -D- -u admin:sphere -X POST -H "X-Atlassian-Token: nocheck" -H "Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded" "http://localhost:61021/jira6414/rest/project-templates/1.0/templates?projectTemplateWebItemKey=com.atlassian.jira-legacy-project-templates%3Ajira-blank-item&projectTemplateModuleKey=com.atlassian.jira-legacy-project-templates%3Ajira-blank-item&name=SECOND+Create+from+REST+API&key=CFRAPI&lead=admin&keyEdited=false"
