Create issue via rest api

Hello,

I am able to successfully create an issue by passing the username and password as shown below:

curl -D- -u myusername:mypassword -X POST --data '{ "fields": {"project": {"key": "TEST"},"summary": "Test Summary 1 2 3...","issuetype": {"name": "Task"}}}' -H "Content-Type: application/json"https://dbxbizanalytics.atlassian.net/rest/api/2/issue/

 

but when I pass in the auth headers instead of the password, I get AUTHENTICATED_FAILED. Here's the call:

curl -D-  -X POST --data '{ "fields": {"project": {"key": "TEST"},"summary": "Test Summary 1 2 3...","issuetype": {"name": "Task"}}}' -H "Content-Type: application/json"https://dbxbizanalytics.atlassian.net/rest/api/2/issue/

 

Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

 

Srinivas.

Where is the authentication header in the second call? There is just Content-Type...

Sorry, copied incomplete command. Here's the correct one:

curl -D-  -X POST -H "Authorization: Basic mybase64encoded_username:password" --data '{ "fields": {"project": {"key": "TEST"},"summary": "Test Summary 1 2 3...","issuetype": {"name": "Task"}}}' -H "Content-Type: application/json"https://dbxbizanalytics.atlassian.net/rest/api/2/issue/

 

If the username:password pair is properly Base64 encoded your command seems OK. Try with the -v option to see more verbose output.

On a side note, any reason why you want to use an Authorization header? Using -u does exactly the same thing.

How to manage many similar workflows?

I have multiple projects that use variations of the same base workflow. The variations depend on the requirements of the project or issue type. The variations mostly come in the form of new statuses ...
