How to link to a certain JIRA version if I know the human-readable string

We have versions like 1.0, 1.1, 2.0, 3.0 etc. and I would like to add links from our DokuWiki wiki to JIRA automatically.

It's pretty simple for issues where I just parse the wiki text and whenever I see PROJECTKEY-123, I take that and append it to the main URL like

However, with versions the URLs are something like and that number is just an ID, so our 2.0 will be 10002, 3.0 will be 10003 etc.

Is there a way to somehow construct the link if I know I need to link to a human-readable version "x.y"?

You could possibly just link to the issue navigator, then you wouldn't need to do any rest calls:

You will probably need to retreive the list of versions (e.g. via REST), find the one who's name matches and then get its id. Then you can contruct the URL like you have listed
