create issue URL parameters - "versions" and "fixVersions" ignored

following the docs at


I am able to compose a URL that will successfully spawn a Jira "create issue" page with the correct project and issuetype.  However, I can't get it to recognize the versions or fixVersions parameters.


I have verified that I am using valid values for thosethe versions or fixVersions parameters -- I grabbed the value from the URL of Jira's "Releases" -> "Version FOO" page https://my-jira-server/projects/myProjectNameBar/versions/26543


My URL -> https://my-jira-server/secure/CreateIssue.jspa?pid=12930&issuetype=1&fixVersions=26543&versions=26543

Hi Scott,

Are you able to use the REST API to complete this:

We recommend using the JIRA REST API instead of following the steps on this page, as the content is now quite outdated. Please see our JIRA REST API Tutorials for further information.

The JIRA API documentation will provide examples that you can try and see if you get better results that way with a POST to the  /rest/api/2/issue endpoint.



I use a Confluence page to document the project status of my software release.  I want to include a link on that page so that users can easily open a new Jira issue for the release (aka, version).

So, um, to use the JIRA REST API, I'd need to embed a form with the params to execute a post while investigating if my company already has the Atlassian Connect add-on to automatically handle authentication...

Do you know if there is an easier way already supported by Confluence?  Or how to see if the Connect add-on is already there?
