Facing issue in marking filter as favorite / non-favorite


We are developing the plug-in connector for Atlassian JIRA and one of our client tools. The version of JIRA used is 6.4.7 . While updating 'filter', we came across below mentioned issue.

There is a feature 'favourite'  in filter object. This enables user to mark the created filter as favourite/ non-favourite, which will ease the use of that particular filter.

In order to update the filter as favorite, the request URL and body we used are as mentioned below:



    "name": "All Open Bugs",
    "description": "Lists all open bugs",
    "jql": "type = Bug and resolution is empty",
    "favourite": true


Even though the value for favourite is true, the filter is not getting marked accordingly on UI. The response which we are getting on REST client any way reflects the value of favourite as false.


It will be great if any of you can explain this behavior. Is there any other way to update the filter as favourite/ non-favourite?


Thanks in advance,

Pallavi Bhat
