Would like a button to create a jira ticket from confluence with issuetype and component filled out

Hello all!

I'm trying to make it easy for people within the company to create jira tickets from our confluence cloud page.

I'm able to link to the createIssue url, but when I pass an argument like components, it doesn't get automatically filled out.

Both issuetype and pid seem to work.

The url I'm using is something like:


but as I said, the components is ignored. 


Does anyone have any suggestions?

 I found that the Atlassian documentation shows: createIssueDetails.jspa? opposed to createissue.jspa?  This allowed my components to be set but please be aware, since I have the modify reporter permission for the project, the reporter is blank and needs to be filled in. 



the reference for creating a issue by URL is here:

I ended up creating a typeform of just the material I wanted, then created a zap in zapier to take the typeform info and create an appropriate jira.  I then used the "build your own macro" tools to include the typeform in my confluence page.  Works great!
