How to get URL to a created issue from API

Hey there, I am creating issues using API, however, I cannot find URL for created issues in the response body.


How can I get the URL for a created issue using API?

Hi Zharkyn,

The Cloud Rest API documentation for issue creation shows that the issue key and URL are returned. Atlassian's example is below.

    "issues": [
            "id": "10000",
            "key": "TST-24",
            "self": ""
            "id": "10001",
            "key": "TST-25",
            "self": ""
    "errors": []}

 The id value is the issue ID, key value is the issue key, and the self value is the issue URL. Cheers!

Hi @Zharkyn Kassenov

in case it is still not working - could you probably post the response of your call here?
It then might be easier to dig in deeper.

Hi @Joshua Sneed _ Contegix , @Daniel Ebers ,

Thank you for your replies. What I was actually after is URL that can be opened in a browser to navigate to the created issue. I only see API URL of the issue in the response. Sorry for not being clear in the question.

Like Joshua showed there is the key as a response, this is the "dynamic" part of the URL, the rest is "static" like - the task would only be to concatenate your URL + the project key.

You mentioned you see only API URL in response key. I am unsure why - could you please show an anonymized output here?

Hi Zharkyn,

Plug the key into Jira's standard issue URL to access it in the UI. E.g.${key}. Cheers!
