Jira Issue Create Version 1

This handler uses the Jira Rest API library to create an issue within a Jira project. The handler first puts the data that was inputted into the JSON format and then posts that information using a REST call with basic auth. (WARNING: Using this handler without enabling SSL will not be secure). The id, key, and url of the issue will be returned by the handler. Any errors that occur during the process will be caught and re-raised by this handler.
