If anyone ever came up with a working solution for this could you please share? I have not used Python in a few years so I am very rusty but I am trying to accomplish the same thing as the above post. I tried each solution on this page but am having some issues. 

The main issue I am running into is even after installing the Atlassian package it still shows there is no module named Atlassian for this script to use. If I try to install the ServiceDesk module through pycharm it fails each time. Has anyone found a work around for this?

Sorry this may be a dumb question, I'm just getting back into this and need a little guidance. 


Thank you!

fields = {'assignee': 'username=biliBoy'}
sd.update_issue_field('ITM-14698', fields)

Oh thx for help me, can you show exemple how it work ?  I try use this code but, that not work, i think this is my fault, mb write wrong fields  

no errors, but any change in ticket 


just provide 'biliBoy'. get rid of 'username=' from the above code

yeah i try... 

fields = {'assignee': 'biliBoy'}
d.update_issue_field('ITM-14698', fields)

This is not work too.. 

I open this file: ServiceDesk

import ServiceDesk

 and find method 'update_issue_field' and what i find ? Empy method... 


Other method's from this file: 


I think this 'update_issue_field' not working because empty... When i ask this method and give him issue key, he not have link where need go to find this issue like a '


sad ^(

fields = {'assignee': 'username'}
sd.update_issue_field(issuekey, fields)

can some one show, how it work ? i cant find any information about update_issue_field, any exemple on google.... =/
