rest api use existing projects configuration when creating a new project

When creating a new project using the rest api, how would I make the new project use another projects configuration, similar to the "Create with shared configuration" option when manually creating a new project?

found out about it myself by sniffing the network traffic. This works for Version 7.2.4

curl -k -u username:password "{\"key\":\"NEWPROJKEY\", \"name\":\"NEWPROJNAME\", \"lead\":\"NEWPROJPROJLEAD\"}" -H "Content-Type: application/json" https://jira.xxxxx.xxxxx/rest/project-templates/1.0/createshared/10000 2>&1

 

The 10000 is the id of the project you want to copy the configuration from

 

 

Here is the data separate in clear:

{

"key":"NEWPROJKEY",

"name":"NEWPROJNAME",

"lead":"NEWPROJPROJLEAD"

}
