How should I handle required JIRA custom fields when creating issue from testlink

I have a working integration between JIRA and Testlink. I am able to attach existing defects from JIRA to testlink test executions.

however when I try to create a new defect I get the following error

"addIssue:Failure:JIRA Message: customfield_10051 => Severity is required."

I have a severity field for a issue type "Bug" in JIRA that is mandatory.

I have tries to add this to the configuration in testlink as follows. it did not work.

Please advice.


  <values><value>Wrong Behavior</value></values>

I am using REST interface

Can you check the definition of your customfield 10051 (Severity) to see if it is restricted to a specific set of values. 

The normal behaviour for Severity is that it is a select from a list of options. Your request should therefore match one of these predefined options.

Did you get any solution for this? We also have Severity as a custom field with a list of values and I need to pass the value while creating a bug.


Your request was solved? Please share the information with us?
