Create Issue from Template

Here you will learn how to create a new issue from Jira template with Easy Templates for JIra app.

Jira Cloud Instructions

It's very easy to create a new Jira issue using a previously saved Template.

You have 2 options: "Create"  or "Prefill new issue" flows. Both have their own benefits.

Create flow

Use it for templates with child tasks and if you want to streamline new issue creation.

  • Go to your Jira instance

  • Click “Templates” button on the left sidebar or click “X” button

  • OR click Apps → "Templates" on a top header menu:

  • A modal dialogue will be opened asking you to choose Project, Issue Type, Template

If you have added Variables in you template’s content (like <<Event Name>> - you'll be asked to fill its values.

  • Click "Create"

A new Jira issue will be created immediately and pre-filled with the following fields

  • Summary

  • Description

  • and the rest of the saved fields

Sub-tasks or child issues will be auto-generated for a corresponding issue containing their own summary and descriptions

If no templates are found corresponding to a selected issue type - then the error message will appear

You can use a hotkey to call the Templates selection dialog. Just press "x" being inside your Jira instance.

Prefill New Issue flow

Use it if a modification to content is required prior to an actual new issue creation.

  • Go to your Jira instance
