bash script REST API request problem

Shengda Liu Jun 23, 2014
summary="Abnormal End"
data=`cat <<EOF
'"fields": {"project":{"key": $key},"summary": $summary,"description": $description,"issuetype": {"name": $name}}'
#echo $data
curl -D- -u user:psswd -X POST --data {$data} -H "Content-Type: application/json" http://localhost:8081/rest/api/2/issue/

Error :

{"errorMessages":["Unexpected character (''' (code 39)): was expecting double-quote to start field name\n at [Source: org.apache.catalina.connector.CoyoteInputStream@1616d88; line: 1, column: 3]"]}

I'm trying to write a bash script wich can do REST API request from data of a CSV file. Can someone help me to resolve this error ?

(I need key, summary, description and name fields as variables to use these later import from a CSV file.)

I found the solution with the command eval :

eval curl "-D- -u user:pswd -X POST --data ${data} -H \"Content-Type: application/json\" http://localhost:8081/rest/api/2/issue/"

Having trouble understand how the script should look written out, do I keep the brackets in the script or are they there just for display reasons? Can you provide how this is supposed to look in an executable?
