Trying to create a python script that will launch Jira create issue page

This is my first time using JIRA and I'm currently trying to create a python script that will open a JIRA create issue page. What the end result is that a user would run the script and the JIRA create issue page will open up with certain parts of it being already filled in with some information I gather about the current issue. I'm wondering if this is possible to do and if so could someone point me in the right direction?

A basic start would be to follow these steps on how to construct a URL to create an issue:

If you're just providing a static link to the same project each time, then it's pretty simple. If it's more interactive, your script may need to access the JIRA API to fetch the list of projects for example.
