You are also able to combine the PTC Create Issue Automation macro with the PTC Default Value macro.

Note: You can use this functionality on following PTC Create Issue Automation macro fields:

  • Project Key

  • Issue Type ID

  • Summary

  • Linked Issue Key and Relationship

  • “Add fields”

Step 1: Add a PTC Create Issue Automation macro to your PTC Template or any Confluence page

Following the guide Create a Simple PTC Template

Step 2: Configure the PTC Create Issue Automation macro

Set placeholders for all fields.

  • Project Key → __Project Key__

  • Issuetype Id → __Issue Type__

  • Issue Summary → __Summary__

Step 3: Configure Pages with button (target page)

On the page where the PTC button is located (Create Pages or Create Space Button) insert a PTC Default Value macro for your placeholders (for example for __Project Key__).

Inside the macro body inset your default value (like you would use the PTC Default Value macro as normal)

For the project key placeholder you need to insert a valid project key e.g “TESTPRO

For the issue type you need to insert a valid issue type Id e.g “10102

  • in this case we insert the Project Key from our test project (“TESTPRO”)

Step 4: Instantiate your template with the PTC button

Now, you can see your previously selected project key, in the Replace Placeholder dialog .

The same applies to the issue type.
