Send JSON Package with httpPost Routine?

I'm currently attempting to use the httpPost routine in JJupin to send a JSON package to our internal portal. I've attached the following script to a post function on one of our workflow transitions (I removed the URL):

string url = "<INTERNAL VENDOR PORTAL URL>";
string [] headers = "Content-Type|application/json";
//Get field values for JSON Body
date shipStart = toTimeZone(customfield_11108,"UTC");
string format = "yyyy-mm-dd HH:mm:ss";
date shipEnd = toTimeZone(customfield_11109,"UTC");
string uuid = "12345-678910-ABCDEF-GHIJKL";
//Load the Product Names and place them into the product dynamic string
KPOption [] productNames = customfield_12401;
string product = "{\"name\":\""+productNames[0].value+"\"}";
if(arraySize(productNames) > 1) {
    for(number i = 1; i < arraySize(productNames); i = i+1) {
    product = product + ",{\"name\":\""+productNames[i].value+"\"}";
    }
}
//Load the origin UUID's and place them into the origin dynamic string
string [] originUUID = {"10005-600000-A0000F-G0000L", "12345-0987654-jgg8765-987o", "1234-98uwyeye-838483-oui22"};
string origins = "{\"uuid\":\""+originUUID[0]+"\"}";
if(arraySize(originUUID) > 1) {
    for(number j = 1; j < arraySize(originUUID); j = j+1) {
        origins = origins + ",{\"uuid\":\""+originUUID[j]+"\"}";
    }
}
//Load the destination UUID's and place them into the destination dynamic string
string [] destinationUUID = {"1234-98uwyeye-838483-oui22", "12345-0987654-jgg8765-987o"};
string destinations = "{\"uuid\":\""+destinationUUID[0]+"\"}";
if(arraySize(destinationUUID) > 1) {
    for(number k = 1; k < arraySize(destinationUUID); k = k+1) {
        destinations = destinations + ",{\"uuid\":\""+destinationUUID[k]+"\"}";
    }
}
//Construct the JSON Body
string json = "{\"rfq\":{\"jira_issue\":\""+key+"\",\"raw_data\":{\"jira_parent_issue\":\""+parent+"\",\"temperature\":\""+
temperature+"\",\"shipping_period_start\":\""+formatDate(shipStart, format)+" UTC\",\"shipping_period_finish\":\""+formatDate(shipEnd, format)+
" UTC\",\"total_loads\":"+totalLoads+",\"container_size\":\""+containerSize+"\",\"truck_type\":\""+truckType+"\",\"gross_weight\":\""+grossWeight+
"\",\"request_type\":\""+requestType+"\",\"origins\":["+origins+"],\"destinations\":["+destinations+"],\"products\":["+product+"],\"external_rfq\":[{\"jira_issue\":\""+
key+"\",\"vendor_uuid\":\""+uuid+"\"}]}}}";
//send the payload
string [] payload = {"rfq", json};
return httpPost(url, headers, payload);

Unfortunately, our internal portal wouldn't accept the message being send by JIRA because it's not being formatted as a JSON message - rather, it's being URL encoded, and the message can't be parsed correctly by the internal portal. Here's the error output we got when attempting to send this JSON:

I, [2016-07-06T20:21:59.980078 #5557]  INFO -- : Started POST "/rfqs.json" for 69.74.224.69 at 2016-07-06 20:21:59 +0000

We used the same syntax seen here to construct the JSON message and sending it using the httpPost routine. We made sure the output of the string matches the expected incoming message specifications of the internal portal. We also used Postman to send the same string as a JSON to the portal URL, and it handled the incoming JSON correctly, which means there's a problem at the the JJupin or JIRA level. Any thoughts on how we could get he httpPost routine to work correctly?

JJupin does not yet support sending JSON in httpPost(), but according to developers they have added this feature to their internal tracker, so it might pop-up with some new version. You might want to look at and watch this issue:
