Cannot create Customer Request by using REST API

I referred this site and tried to create a customer request the following command.

curl --request POST \
	--url 'https://{my_instance}' \
	--user {my_account}:{my_tokone} \
	--header 'Accept: application/json' \
	--header 'Content-Type: application/json' \
	-d customer_request.json

Also, the above json file is below. 

	"serviceDeskId": "1",
	"requestTypeId": "88",
		"summary": "Request JSD via REST",
		"description": "This was issued by Jira Cloud REST API."

However, the response was below.

{"errorMessages":["There was an error parsing JSON. Check that your request body is valid."]}

Please note that I can execute GET command with my account and token.

Do you have any ideas to fix the issue?

Hi @Shinsuke Maita 

There is nothing wrong with data indeed. Maybe there is an encoding problem with customer_request.json file? Can you please try the same call on postman?


Hi @Tansu Akdeniz 

Thank you for your reply!
I could create customer request on Postman.

Do you know what encoding I should specify the json file?
I have specified UTF-8 and CRLF to it.

Best Regards,
