I've found the answer and would like to share it with the community.


First, the page should depend on


If you want to show this dialog from standard search page or view issue page, then this dependency has already been included.

In my case I have a custom page and my own web-resource with my button, so I've just added this dependency to the web-resource.


Second, need to know the ID of the issue. 


And finally, the code:

 JIRA.Forms.createEditIssueForm({issueId: issueId}).asDialog({
id: "my-custom-edit-dialog",


Thank you, I was searching for that for weeks.

Where did you find that? Is there somewhere a documentation ;-)

Documentation? Heh, nope, there's very poor documentation.

I've just researched JIRA sources.
