I'm getting "title is required" with bitbucket POST issue example



So I'm trying to POST an issue with Postman for some project I'm working on. But the thing is, although my authorization is alright, no matter what I put in the body, I get the following error :

<ul class="errorlist"><li>title<ul class="errorlist"><li>This field is required.</li></ul></li></ul>

I'm using this endpoint :


And doing a GET on it is giving me my issues.

I used the official documentation with its example, available here : POST an issue with the snippet they give :

    "status": "new",
    "priority": "trivial",
    "title": "This\\ is\\ a title",
    "reported_by": {
        "username": "tutorials",
        "first_name": "",
        "last_name": "",
        "is_team": false,
        "avatar": "https://secure.gravatar.com/avatar/0bc5bd490000b8e63c35c0f54e667b9e?d=identicon&s=32",
        "resource_uri": "/1.0/users/tutorials"
    "utc_last_updated": "2012-07-29 02:35:38+00:00",
    "comment_count": 0,
    "metadata": {
        "kind": "bug",
        "version": null,
        "component": null,
        "milestone": null
    "content": "This is the content",
    "created_on": "2012-07-29 04:35:38",
    "local_id": 3,
    "follower_count": 0,
    "utc_created_on": "2012-07-29 02:35:38+00:00",
    "resource_uri": "/1.0/repositories/tutorials/mydvcsproject/issues/3",
    "is_spam": false

So, I'm posting this with my authorization and content-type, but well, the error pops up...


What could possibly be wrong ?
