Link to Create issue from template

This page provides information about forming links to Create issue from template and adding custom Create from template button under Project.

The feature makes possible to create a link that directly opens the issue creation form with Template and other fields already selected. The link can be reused by adding new item on general page or under selected project. There are two kinds of links: General link and Project link that opens Create issue from template screen under chosen Project.

Steps

To create a link which will open Create from template form:

  1. Paste link: /plugins/servlet/ac/com.intenso.jira.issue-templates/create-issue-from-template to your Jira Cloud link.
    Example: https://yourdomain.atlassian.net/plugins/servlet/ac/com.intenso.jira.issue-templates

  2. Now you can add parameters to the link to preselect some options:

    • Project Key
    • Issue (Template) Key or Issue (Template) ID
    • Issue Type ID
      Info

      If you do not know how to find Issue Type ID check the Common FAQ.

      Info
