JIRA wizard-like create issue dialog

I want to create issues using "wizard" (step-by-step) approach. It means that I want to divide create issue phase into several steps. Good example is https://support.atlassian.com. In order to create issue there I need to perform at least 3 steps (I'm guided by support issue creation wizard):

  1. Enter SEN
  2. Select issue type
  3. Fill in issue information

How could I achieve the same functionality in my JIRA without spending much time for custom development? Are there any plugins available? Or maybe you can provide some recommendations of how to create wizard-like create issue dialogs in JIRA?

Thanks for the tip.

But the thing is that I used support.atlassian.com as an example of what I would like to do with my jira by illustrating the concept. I do not want to do exactly what support.atlassian.com provides, but something similar - I want to be able to use 'Next' buttons instead of 'Create' on several pages with JIRA fields.

The Atlassian support site is slightly different, but you can get close

What they've done is simple, and easy to replicate, except for step one, which needs some extra coding:

  • The SEN functionality is extra and not available off-the-shelf. I don't know how they've done it, but I suspect a plugin and a tweak to the core code to take you to the extra function on the click of "create"
  • Jira already prompts for issue type separately when it doesn't already have it
  • Create custom fields you need to gather all the information
  • Create a new "create issue" screen
  • Divide it into tabs (you'll see Atlassian have three tabs on create)

"next" is just a translation - you can rename the transition for the actual "create" and Naren's link tells you how to do the rest.
