How can use python to set the scheduled start date in portfolio?


I'm trying to use the python API to set the start date of an epic in the Portfolio road map.  I've spent a week trying to figure it out.

                    issue_dict = {   'startdate''2020-01-08',


                      new_issue = jira.create_issue(fields = issue_dict)

Also looked for other ways, like the WorkLog, to no avail.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.


Sorry I'm confused.  Perhaps this doesn't have anything to do with Portfolio.

It may just be about the API to set start dates for a Roadmap in a Next Gen Project

startDateFld = getattr(issue.fields, startDateFldName)        
if issueType == 'Epic' and dateStarted is not None and dateStarted != startDateFld:
            issueDict.update( {startDateFldName: dateStarted} )

if row.EndLate is not None:
            dueDate = getattr(issue.fields, 'duedate')
            endLate = row.EndLate.strftime('%Y-%m-%d')
            if issueType == 'Epic' and endLate != dueDate:
                issueDict.update( {'duedate': endLate} )
