Currently there is no support for this exact functionality in StoryBoard 
You could add some JavaScript to the docs theme to make a POST request 
to the
StoryBoard API with the relevant parameters set, but this would need 
some work
to also get a valid StoryBoard access token to use in the request 

Other than that you could settle for linking to an individual project 
view in
StoryBoard, for example https://storyboard.openstack.org/#!/project/456 
has a
button on it for logged-in users to create a story which automatically 
has a
task in that project.

The ability to construct an link to StoryBoard's web UI which 
populates part of the things needed to create a story seems generally 
though. In particular I can see it potentially being helpful for 
resolving our
lack of bug templates, which has been raised as a problem on more than 

Supporting this type of feature would allow folk to construct URLs which
automatically populate the description field with some template of their 
which should hopefully be useful enough to solve both that problem and 
the need
to replicate this "Report a bug" feature adequately. I intend to take a 
look at
how much work it'd be for us to implement that kind of thing in the near
future, and hopefully that'll lead to a more ideal solution than those I 

Best Regards,
