Pre-populate Label in CreateIssue URL Edited

(edited due to typo in the original post)

Hi Folks,


Can anyone help me withe the proper syntax for pre-populating a label when using the URL for Create Issue?


I've tried various combos, but it doesn't work


This sort of things works fine for me"


(i.e. without the Lable parameter)


But this doesn't:



Any ideas?

Jira expects parameters in a url to be quoted in double quotes, it sees single quotes as part of the data.

Hi Nic,

Thanks for the reply, but that suggests the URL should be as per the example (i.e. with '&labels=%22PI7%22'), but that doesn't actuially work.

Do we know if it's possible to pre-populate a label?  Perhaps this is one field you cannot pre-populate?

Aby furthre help appreciated.



That's the one you said works fine, so I'm a little confused.

Ooops, silly me - I meant to say, the one that works fine is:




i.e. without the Lablel parameter
