What are the mandatory fields and their types needed when creating an issue in Jira?

Every project in Jira can be associated with Issue type scheme that can be created from scratch or edited so that the user can decide wether its required or optional field. However, the default issue type scheme for projects created in Jira with no customisation is as following:

Jira mandatory fields:

* Project ID

  • Information about the project IDs and issue types can be retrieved using http://%AccountLink%/rest/api/2/issue/createmeta Api Get request.

* Issue type

  • Valid issue type ID is the mandatory element.
  • By default issue type created by Testlio is “Bug” can be retrieved for each project by the same API request.
  • Bug issue type ID normally is “10004”.

* Reporter (user creating the issue)

  • Provided through the authentication itself (Basic authentications mainly)

* Summary (Issue Title)

  • Issue title or name provided in text.

The four Workflow items required by Testlio's issue status should have the ability to transit from one to another without any blockage workflow items in between.

  • Change Testlio integration account password in Jira platform without updating the password in Testlio configuration.
  • Make sure that Jira account used by Testlio to sync testing issues has sufficient permissions to access/create/edit/update issues in your Jira platform.
