Create project template with issue type screen scheme

project

#1

Hello,

I’m working on a corporate plugin to create project templates (following the tutorial https://developer.atlassian.com/server/jira/platform/creating-a-project-template/)\ )

It works well but I need to go further :grin:

I would like to setup the JSON configuration file with issue type screen scheme and screen schemes. I see on java documentation some methods and interfaces to implement these schemes (https://docs.atlassian.com/software/jira/docs/api/7.5.0/com/atlassian/jira/project/template/hook/package-summary.html) but I don’t find any examples of JSON with these schemes.

Could you help me and maybe provide an example of complete JSON to instanciate a JIRA Project with all of these schemes ?

Regards,

Baptiste

Thank you for your reply. Exactly what I was searching for!

Do you have some other examples of JSON code to add on this template (custom fields, field layout…) ? I saw on documentation interfaces about Resolution. Have you got an idea of how it works ?


#4

Can you tell me specifically what you’re trying to accomplish?


#5

I have the same requirements, I am creating a project template with custom workflow, custom fields and custom screens. How can I create custom fields using project-template json?


#6

Did you get any solution to create a custom field in project template?


#7

Hello,

I did not find a solution to create custom fields using the JSON template :cry:

(The custom field “Area” is pre-existing on the instance) Here is what I’ve tried so far:

{
        "key": "customScreen",
	"name": "Custom Screen",
	"description": "custom screen description",
				"tabs": [
					{
						"name": "General",
						"fields": [
							"issuetype",
							"summary",
							"reporter",
							"assignee",												
						],
						"custom-fields": [
							"Area"
						]
					}
{
        "key": "customScreen",
	"name": "Custom Screen",
	"description": "custom screen description",
				"tabs": [
					{
						"name": "General",
						"fields": [
							"issuetype",
							"summary",
							"reporter",
							"assignee",
							"Area"					
						]
					}

and both these tests with “Area” in uppercase and lowercase.
It doesn’t work and I can’t find any error in the logs.

@sfbehnke do you maybe have advice?

Thanks in advance!

You can’t use the JSON Config afaik. You must write java code in the projectHook.


#9

Hello, I have 2 questions:

1.) How to associate screens with specific operations like Create, Edit and Delete?
2.) How to associate all of my screens with a screen scheme?

Thanks!!

Please just address the source code. The JSON Import interface supports very specific things only. Everything else is addressed through a Java Class called after the project is created.

The relevant JSON Serializer is located in com.atlassian.jira.project.template.hook.ConfigTemplateImpl.
