Hi @Yasashree ,

Are you able to set the due date field via JIRA UI ? To set Due date on an issue, you need "schedule Issue" permission on the project. You may need to check for the permission. 

i am able to add due date in UI

@Niranjan i am able to add due date in UI

@Yasashree - Try to pass the value like this

"duedate": "2021-06-09"

If it does not work, kindly share the complete restapi POST call

@Niranjan  where do i need to put this in payload 

@Yasashree - Pass it like every other field. You can check this article .

@Niranjan  it is working


{    "fields": {       

    "project": {            



     "parent": {            





     "description""add description",        


      "issuetype": {            



     "assignee": {           



 "labels": [ "ReleaseManagement""CS"        ]    }}
