JIRA REST api using cURL and cmd question


I just installed curl and I'm trying to create a JIRA issue from cmd but I'm having issues. I altered the example request from Atlassian and used this in cmd:

curl -k -D- -u fred:fred -X POST --data { "fields": { "project": "IT Asset Management" {"key": "TEST599"}, "summary": "REST ye merry gentlemen.", "description": "Creating of an issue using project keys and issue type names using the REST API", "issuetype": {"name": "App:Unknown"}}} -H "Content-Type: application/json"  (our JIRA server)/rest/api/2/issue/ 


This is the error I am getting:

What's going on?? Thanks!

If I try to ping (my JIRA server)/rest/api/2/issue/ I don't get anything. This is the url it says to use on the example Atlassian uses to create an issue with cURL tho..


You need a single quote around your data.  Command should look something like this:

curl -k -D- -u fred:fred -X POST --data '{"fields": { "project... }'
