How to find id of an issue type for a non-admin user.

I know it can be done with admin rights, but is it possible through non-admin rights using some REST clients or something similar?

Thanks,

Hi Tarun,

You can view create issue screen that will load all issue types. Direct URL should be like this:

<your JIRA instance>/secure/CreateIssue!default.jspa

then just view HTML source of the page using your browser and you will have all informations in below form:

&lt;option class="11611" id="issuetype116113" data-icon="/jira/images/icons/issuetypes/task.png" value="3"&gt;
    Task
&lt;/option&gt;

where value is the issue type ID.

I hope that will help.

Best Regards,

Mirek
