I think we need more information

What is "preparing data"?

What "variable" and where would it come from?

I assume "assign to description" means "put content of variable in the description field"?  Would that need to be the whole description or part of it?

For creating issue using rest api, how to send attachment field through post request.

$data = array(

'fields' => array(

'project' => array(

'key' => $key,


'summary' => ''.$ROW['bugs'][0]['what'],

'description' => $ROW['bugs'][0]['why'].$ROW['bugs'][0]['how'],
"issuetype" => array(
"name" => $ROW['bugs'][0]['issue'],


this how i'm trying, but 'm not able to create issue in jira.

I'm sorry, but that's just a block of code, out of any context, and with no error message or explanation of what it's doing or how. The best I can do is tell you that your code is not sending the right data to JIRA for the creation (I assume it's a REST call)
