We are about to start using JIRA 6.1 soon. I would like users, if something bad happens with a piece of software, to be given a URL that will prefill most of the interesting fields in a bug report.
Is it possible to do something like this? Can I generate a URL that when clicked will create a new bug report and prefill most fields so that the user can then just click submit?
This is more interesting for us than using the REST api because I don't want to force the user to provide its login to the software or write it down on a file.
This is possible!
For more info about using URL for creation check out: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRAKB/Creating+Issues+via+direct+HTML+links
Please note that if you put that link with summary and all required fields - the ticket will be created automatically without user interaction. If you wish user add some additional data regarding the defect - remove summary or some requred field to continue with the creation screen.
I am trying to create issue using direct HTML links. Project and issue type pre-populates but summary or assignee is not populating. Any help is greatly appreciated. Below is the sample URL I am using....
