How to a create Next-gen project in Jira cloud using Jira CLI

This article provides instructions on how to create a Next-gen project in Jira Cloud using the Jira Command Line Interface (CLI) app.


Use the following action command to create a simple Next-gen project by using createProject action and --project, --name--type, --lead--template parameters.

--action createProject --project "NEXTGEN" --name "Next gen project" --type "software" --lead "Appfire"  --template "Agility"

In this command, NEXTGEN is the project key and Next gen project is the project name.

  • The --template "Agility" parameter is used in the action in order to create or update Next-gen type of projects.
  • It is recommended to test this scenario in a non-production environment or run the action with the --simulate parameter to verify the behavior before deploying.
