How to change issue's parent via JIRA REST API?

I've tried this but this does not work:

 

 

var issueData = {
"update": {
"parent" : {
"key": "TES-1"
}
}
};
 

AP.require('request', function(request) {
request({
url: '/rest/api/2/issue/TES-12',
// adjust to a POST instead of a GET
type: 'PUT',
data: JSON.stringify(issueData),
success: function(response) {
// convert the string response to JSON
response = JSON.parse(response);
// dump out the response to the console
console.log(response);
dialog.close();

},
error: function() {
console.log(arguments);
},
// inform the server what type of data is in the body of the HTTP POST
contentType: "application/json"
});
});

 

 

 

Thanks a lot!

You cannot change the parent through the REST API. If you need automation, you can use browser automation (e.g. Selenium) or write a script with Script Runner and expose a REST endpoint.
