Field 'affectsVersions' cannot be set. It is not on the appropriate screen, or unknown.

When i tried to create a new issue with issue type "Bug" using screen/page, then it is allowed to select value for affects versions but when i tried to the same with REST API then following error message is displayed.

{"errorMessages":[],"errors":{"affectsVersions":"Field 'affectsVersions' cannot be set. It is not on the appropriate screen, or unknown."}}

 

How can i add value(s) for affects versions field while creating an issue using REST API ?

All JIRA views are linked to a screen.

You need to go to the respective screen from Administration -> Screens

then add filed "Affected Version" to the screen and click save.

You can se the field now on your page.

 

The id of the field is actually "versions" - try using that instead.

You can get the ids of all fields in the system (both system and custom) by doing a GET on /rest/api/2/field.
