Create an Issue

Create an issue when you need to report a problem or request a change in your project.

  1. Open your project.

  2. On the Projects sidebar, click Issues:

    • The issue list displays existing issues associated with this project.

  3. Click the New issue button on top of the list or plus-add-grey.png on the sidebar:

    • A New issue dialog will be displayed:

  4. Outline your problem or request in the issue Summary; it will appear as the issue title on the issue list. For a lengthy explanation use the optional Description field.

  5. If you know who should take care of the issue, assign it to that person:


    The assignee will get a notification with a link to this issue.

  6. You can optionally:

    • add a tag to the issue to associate it with some other related issues

    • set the due date for resolving the issue

    • attach a file or add a checklist

    • add this issue to an issue board

    • specify values for custom fields if any (e.g. Priority).

    Or skip these options for now. You can always add or edit them later on.

  7. When you're done, click Create.

Issue drafts

If you've started creating a new issue, entered some information such as summary, set or changed some properties, but never got to the final step of clicking Create and left the page, your work won't be lost. It will be saved as a draft, allowing you to continue where you left off at any time, even if you log out of Space.

If you have any drafts saved, next time you click New issue, a draft counter will be displayed in the top right corner of the dialog window:


To complete your draft, choose it from the list, specify necessary parameters, and click Create. An issue will be created out of the draft and added to the issue list.

You can delete unwanted drafts as well.
