How to set jira resolution state?

Hi ,

I am trying to set the resolution state on jira by the url :  "/rest/api/2/issue/${issueOrkey}/transitions"

and the json body=


"fields": {
"resolution": {
"name": "Duplicate"
"transition": {

"id": "100"



It is not working as getting 500 error or sometimes 405 also,

please help with this issue where I am doing wrong either url or parameter 

I did not get api related to resolution  on jira docs so trying with "transition "  url.

Thanks in advance

First of all you are doing a POST command right? Since that API link is the same for both POST and GET which will get you very different results. 

When you run the GET command what is your result?  

{"expand":"transitions","transitions":[{"id":"61","name":"Reopen issue","to":{"self":"URL/rest/api/2/status/1","description":"The issue is open and ready for the assignee to start work on it.","iconUrl":"URL/images/icons/statuses/open.png","name":"Open","id":"1","statusCategory":{"self":"https://URL/rest/api/2/statuscategory/2","id":2,"key":"new","colorName":"blue-gray","name":"To Do"}}}]}

And there's your answer, that specific issue have only one transition available and that has ID:61, not 100..

If this is not the transition that you desire then you need to go in to the issue and/or project and set the correct permissions and fill out the correct data.
