How do I update a version name

I've been using the "create_version" jira-python function, which is very useful. However, I sometimes need to change a version name across dozens of projects and there doesn't seem to be an "update_version" function, unless I've totally missed it.

Presumably, this would use the 'Update Version' JIRA rest API.

This widget could not be displayed.

There does not seem to be a function which does that, but as you guessed, you can still use the REST API. Execute the following request (see documentation here):

PUT /rest/api/2/version/{id}

Requests is a pretty good http client library for python.

Ok - thanks for the tip.  I'm a little confused about how to compose the URL, which is the value for the key 'self':

from the documentation:
"self": ""

The JIRA server I'm working with has URL
