Hi, +1 for this feature.

For us, it's really important - we need it for creating a "smart quick links" for our clients.

Thank you.

Here is an example with prefilled description and custom field:[description]=prefilled%20description&issue[custom_field_values][2]=Duplicate

For user and version custom fields, you have to provide the user id or version id, eg: issue[custom_field_values][5]=26 where 5 is the custom field id and 26 is the user/version id.

I'm trying to use this feature so that I can supply links in an email that users can click on, thus optimising their flow for creating an issue. A URL such as this:


works fine with the syntax of issue[custom_field_values][6][] working to specify multiple values for a custom field (the syntax was an educated guess).

However, when I try to specify the assignee with issue[assignee_id] such as:


or (in desperation):

where 1 is a valid user id, it doesn't work. Am I missing something?

We are on a rather old version of Redmine (Redmine 2.4.2.stable) so can you advise if this was fixed in later versions or if I am doing something wrong?

Use issue[assigned_to_id] instead of issue[assignee_id]. Please don't post here in closed tickets.
