REST API v3 - create a next-gen project


I'm trying to create a next-gen project via the REST API v3. I can create a classic project but can't see how to create a next-gen, or modify a classic project to become a next-gen.

Any pointers would be much appreciated.

Hi Matt,

Check out the following Developer Blog on this topic that goes into more detail on this:

But as covered in the blog:

There is no public REST API available to create project-scoped entities

I would recomend watching This Feature Request for updates

HI Matt,

I wish I had something you could use right away, but on this one we just have to wait a bit longer, and happy I could help.


Has there been any update on this.  I checked the feature request and things are being implemented, but I do not see where creating a next gen project is being addressed.  Would it be possible to create with the appropriate template type?  If so, what would that be?

+1 for Nathan - I see nothing about creating a next-gen project via the API.

Hey Matt... I had to reverse engineer creating a next gen project.  Turns out the templateKey is "com.pyxis.greenhopper.jira:gh-simplified-agility-scrum".  Hope that helps.
