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.

We need to prefill description and custom fields of type list, version, text and user. Can't find and example in wiki.

Here is an example with prefilled description and custom field:

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.
