JIRA REST C# Issue Creation

I have trouble using C# to create an issue. The issue type has "Wiki Renderers" that I am trying to set.

I have tried to use the C# HttpWebRequest method "POST" and it never worked. Here's a code snippet:

HttpWebRequest request = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create(url) as HttpWebRequest;
request.ContentType = "application/json";
request.Method = "POST";

ASCIIEncoding encoding = new ASCIIEncoding();
byte[] byte1 = encoding.GetBytes(jsonData.ToString());
request.ContentLength = byte1.Length;
Stream dataStream = request.GetRequestStream();
dataStream.Write(byte1, 0, byte1.Length);

string mergedCredentials = string.Format("{0}:{1}"
	, _atpSection.AtpTest.AtpList.JiraUser
	, _atpSection.AtpTest.AtpList.JiraPassword);
byte[] byteCredentials = Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(mergedCredentials);
string base64Credentials = Convert.ToBase64String(byteCredentials);
request.Headers.Add("Authorization", "Basic " + base64Credentials);

HttpWebResponse response = null;
	response = request.GetResponse() as HttpWebResponse;
catch (Exception e)
string StatusDescription = ((HttpWebResponse)response).StatusDescription;
dataStream = response.GetResponseStream();
StreamReader reader = new StreamReader(dataStream);
string responseFromServer = reader.ReadToEnd();


Since this didn't work I used curl.exe instead. Once I get it to work right here I'll try to get the C# to work. Here is the curl.exe snippet:

string tmpFile = Path.GetTempFileName(); // @"C:\tmp.json";
StreamWriter sw = new StreamWriter(tmpFile);

sb.AppendFormat("-D- -X POST -u {0}:{1} --data @\"{2}\" -H \"Content-Type: application/json\" {3}"
	, _atpSection.AtpTest.AtpList.JiraUser
	, _atpSection.AtpTest.AtpList.JiraPassword
	, tmpFile, url);
ProcessStartInfo psi = new ProcessStartInfo();
psi.UseShellExecute = false;
psi.FileName = _atpSection.AtpTest.AtpList.JiraCurlPath; // @"C:\bin\curl\curl.exe";
psi.Arguments = sb.ToString();
psi.RedirectStandardError = true;
psi.RedirectStandardInput = true;
psi.RedirectStandardOutput = true;
psi.WindowStyle = ProcessWindowStyle.Normal;
Process p = new Process();
p.StartInfo = psi;
p.OutputDataReceived += CurlOutputDataReceived;
string stderr = p.StandardError.ReadToEnd();

When I use curl the issue is created but all the CR-LF are removed. When I create a WIKI table it gets messed up.

How can I preserve the CR-LF when using curl.exe?

Can you see anything obviously wrong with the C# snippet?

It'll be really important to use the --data-binary flag; otherwise, the line breaks are thrown out. Here's an example of a corrected cURL command:

curl -D- -u user:pass -X POST -H "Content-Type: application/json" --data-binary @ngr-ver-XX.test http://jiraserver:8080/rest/api/latest/issue

This page doesn't work well in Chrome and the HTML tags are in the source. I can't figure out how to fix it but I think it is due the the web server

Escape with string "\r\n"
