Reports API (Code insights) - Sending value type LINK in data array.


I am working on adding reports to Pull Request view with code insights and reports API, however, I hit a snag when I was trying to send some test results reporting and the value type LINK.

I sent following in data array to add report API. 

"title": "Detailed Report",
"value": "",
"type": "LINK"

The response error was:

{"key": "report-service.general.bad-request", "message": "Value doesn't match expected type LINK", "arguments": {}}

I'm curious what format the API is expecting when you're sending a LINK value?

LINK is an object that is the 2 parts of link (text,href)

{"text": "Link text here", "href": ""}

(found that in server docs)

This worked. Thanks a lot. Please don't mind me saying that, but Atlassian/bitbucket API documentation leaves a lot to be desired IMHO.

I don't mind it!  I'm glad you did.  It's frustrating when things (especially api specs) are left to guess work.

I've actually raised an internal issue to bubble this note up in our cloud docs as well.

@Syed.Naqib Could you show your full JSON, please? I'm still trying to make it work but getting the error response all the time:

{"code": 400, "message": "Unable to process JSON"}
