Jira Issue Create

This handler creates a new issue in a Jira project.


By downloading this file, you acknowledge that you agree to our Terms of Service

Detailed Description

This handler uses the Jira Rest API library to create an issue within a Jira project. The handler first puts the data that was inputted into JSON format and then posts that information using a REST call with basic auth. (WARNING: Using this handler without enabling SSL will not be secure). The id, key, and url of the issue will be returned by the handler. Any errors that occur during the process will be caught and re-raised by this handler, or returned as an error message if specified.
