I was able to post and create using below request.

Maybe try small first and add elements slowly.

In browser, Open Jira, take a sample issue key, go to new browser tab, replace bolded below / paste / hit enter / review response on how object is structured and add items slowly to make sure they are working as you go along:

https://yourdomain.net/rest/api/2/issue/ABCD-1234?expand=names

 

{
"fields":{
"project":{
"key":"APPI"
},
"priority": {
"name": "High"

},
"summary":"Test_Postman1",
"description":"Test description",
"issuetype":{
"name":"Task"
}

}
}

Are you sure what ever you are passing as assignee name is what Jira is expecting?

Because every Jira set up is different, we cannot tell you correct JSON.

When creating a task in UI, see whats the bare minimum fields it needs, simply put that to begin with and confirm if that works.

I would especially remove the assignee part for now as system defaults to Project Lead's name anyways. 

AI March 27, 2024

I have removed the assignee and Custom field too, the Custom field : Request type in JSM and Required, I have removed that too however getting same.

 

{
"fields":{
"project":{
"key":"NP"
},
"summary":"Test_Postman1",
"issuetype":{
"name":"PR"
},
}
}

I just tested below JSON and it worked..

Also share what response you are getting trying below version.

 

{
"fields":{
"project":{
"key":"SUP"
},
"priority": {
"name": "High"

},
"summary":"Test_Postman1",
"description": {
"type": "doc",
"version": 1,
"content": [
{
"type": "paragraph",
"content": [
{
"type": "text",
"text": "description"
}
]
}
]
},
"issuetype":{
"name":"Task"
}

}
}

 

Also, Please review sample structure in below link:

Here is my Issue create page. Does it required any Api permission to get into Jira JSM, I have a Administrator role.

Please cross check what you have for content-type in your header, should be application/json

 

See below:

AI March 28, 2024

Grate! its worked, Content type was text/html changed to application/Json.
