Does JIRA latest version support detecting the creation of an issue event with Rest API?

Hi JIRA support,

Does JIRA rest API support detecting the creation of an issue? For instance, when an issue is created with my account on the website, this creation event can be listened/watched with Rest API?

I went over the rest api doc but didn't find any instruction about this.

Thanks in advance and looking forward to your reply:)

Not really. Jira doesn't care how you raise an issue. If it's that important, consider trapping it with a custom field (most of the time it really isn't relevant for most users - the person raising it is far more important than the method). This is one of the few times I might recommend using javascript to hide it on the create screen so that only REST calls can set it.

You can do this using Webhooks instead of the JIRA REST API -
