Bitbucket rest api POST pull request from a fork-repo Edited

I know I can use the api way to POST pull request because I have read this page .

I want to use the way to pull request from a fork-repo to repo but got "Bad request".
I used this code and 

curl -X POST -H "Content-Type: application/json" -u $Bitbucket_User:$Bitbucket_Pass \$Bitbucket_User/$Repo/pullrequests \
-d '{"title": "test api pull request",
"description": "test api pull request.",
"source": {
"branch": {
"name": "fork_repo_branch"
"repository": {
"full_name": "$Bitbucket_User/$fork_repo"
"destination": {
"branch": {
"name": "repo_branch"
"close_source_branch": false

Do someone know what wrong is?

Was there any other information with the response? There should be some additional information there about what specifically is wrong.

Also, please use `` in the URL instead of `` - it should be a bit more responsive.

Thank you!!

Finally, I push directly to main repo .
