      Description

      NOTE: This suggestion is for JIRA Server. Using JIRA Cloud? See the corresponding suggestion.

      It would be very helpful to me if the JIRA REST api included a method for creating new projects (which included the ability to set all attributes for the project).

      Right now only option I can see for scripted creating of projects via an api appears to be the Soap api which only has a limited createProject function that doesn't allow some project attributes to be set;
      Namely as far I can see it's lacking the ability to set:

      • category for the project
      • issue type scheme for the project
      • notification email (the email address used in the from field of notification emails)
      • screen scheme
      • workflow scheme
      • field scheme
        So projects created via it still have to be updated by hand to set the remaining attributes. (which means we can't automate our project creation workflow fully)
