Creating Issue with predefined Description


Is this possible to create issue from More Actions menu with predefined project and description only?

I tried CreateIssueDetails but this method want predefined project and issuetype.

Hey there,

it's nessesary for an issue to have a issuetype - and in the create you can't take out the definition of a an issuetype.
You could create an issue over "Create" in the head-column.
And edit the "Create"-Screen for this project & issuetype, there you can take out the issuetype field to be edited.

But to the question in your summary:
You can do that but not with the standard-field description you have to create a customfield and there you can define an predifined value for description.

Hope this could help.


What i really need:

Button in More actions menu which will call Create Issue dialog window.

In this window:

--- user may choose issue type;

--- field Description have key of issue from which creating was called.

Now i use in atlassian-plugin.xml:

<web-item key="my_links_link" name="Create linked issue" section="operations-operations" weight="20">
		<label>Create Linked Issue</label>
		<link linkId="my_links_link">/secure/CreateIssueDetails!init.jspa?pid=$$issue.key</link>

This method create issue with predefined issuetype. And i imagine that more beauty will it as user-choice.

What can i do in this case?

Hm I don't think it's very useful without a explicit use-case.
You got the same possibilty with the Create in the head.
You just have to set a standard issuetype for this project to be the predefined issuetype.

Yes, but i need to can call dialog for create new issue without predefined issuetype but with predefined description. What way will good in this case?
