Open the issue creation window via REST Edited

Hello everybody! Is it possible to open issue creation popup window in jira via REST API or another way (may be scriptrunner can help or I have to use js)? I have service which collect some fields for issue creation but not all and I need to open prefilled jira issue creation window from that service with that fields and the remaining fields user would fill by himself. Will be glad to any help.

@aasopening a issue create window in an UI operation, so there is no possibility of opening it via REST API, or Scriptrunner.

But you have two options here,

  1. Take a look at this - https://confluence.atlassian.com/jirakb/how-to-create-issues-using-direct-html-links-in-jira-server-159474.html
    1. It explains how to open issue window with prefilled data.
  2. Using REST API
    1. Fetch issue create meta (to get all options related to issue create)
    2. Create custom form, fill desired data
    3. Create issue using that data.

Thats directly what I need, thanks!

Is it possible to add attachements in field attachement in the window with prefilled data? Or I have to add it manually?

I'm afraid you have to attachments manually.
