GitHub: Is there a way to programmatically file an issue?

Is there an API for filing a GitHub issue?

When I have an unexpected issue I would like to offer the user an option to automatically report an issue.

    Here is the GitHub API page which details how to programatically create an issue:

    Example, from the docs:

    Send a POST request to /repos/:owner/:repo/issues with JSON like the following:

      "title": "Found a bug",
      "body": "I'm having a problem with this.",
      "assignee": "octocat",
      "milestone": 1,
      "labels": [

    You can also edit issues programatically by sending a PATCH request to /repos/:owner/:repo/issues/:number
