Atlassian REST API payload validation feature availability

Hi all,

Have you come across any material that explains whether the Atlassian Cloud REST API's POST method payload is validated before executing the actual modification?

I have found multiple tickets related to this, but no concrete material states whether this process is actively monitored or implemented on the cloud.

My requirement is only for Atlassian Cloud products such as Jira and Confluence and is not related to Forge content.


Any leads would be appreciated. Thank you.

Hello @Amar Khot 

It depends on what you mean by 'validated' and what you mean by 'payload'.

If you send an invalid (incorrectly structured) request, the REST API server will reject it and you'll get the appropriate error message.

If you send a valid (correctly structured) request, the REST API server will pass it to the platform. If the BODY of the request (which is what I assume you mean by 'payload') is invalid (incorrect format / content), the platform will reject it wholly or partially, pass that as message to the REST API server, which in turn passes that to you and you'll get the appropriate error message.

If you send a valid request with a valid BODY, then whatever change you specified will be applied. There is no other validation beyond that.
