Jira REST API updating one field with few values Edited

Hi, I want to update one field in Jira via Jira REST API.

For example let it be a reporter.

Reporter fields has following values in Jira REST API response:

reporter:
self "URL"
name "user_name"
key "user_key"
emailAddress "user_emailAddress"
avatarUrls
48x48 "avatar_url"
24x24 "avatar_url"
16x16 "avatar_url"
32x32 "avatar_url"
displayName "user_displayName"
active true
timeZone "location"

 

Do I have to update all values to successfully change the reporter? Or can I change only one (for example user_key) and all the other values will be changed automatically?

 

I would appreciate your guidance.

 

Best,

Michael

Which endpoint are you using? I believe if you want to update the value, you should have a dataset that you need to post and not all. However, please provide the endpoint to the API, that would give a clearer indication if what you're attempting can be done.

Hi @Prince Nyeche ,

I'm using /rest/api/2/issue (jira server)

Hey Michael, since this is an update, you do not need to update every field, specify the required field and simply follow the JSON representation.
