I'm trying to use the endpoint


to bulk create some project specific status

Here are my projects:


"expand": "description,lead,issueTypes,url,projectKeys,permissions,insight",
"self": "https://<MY_DOMAIN>",
"id": "10004",
"key": "TEST2",
"name": "Test2",
"projectTypeKey": "software",
"simplified": false,
"style": "classic",
"isPrivate": false,
"properties": {}
and when I try to use the API with this payload
{"scope": {"project": {"id": "10004"}, "type": "PROJECT"}, "statuses": [{"description": "This issue is being actively worked on at the moment by the assignee.", "name": "NewStatus", "statusCategory": "In Progress"}]}
I get this error:
{"errorMessages":["We couldn't find project 10004 in this scope."],"errors":{}}
I've upgraded from the free level to the standard level and setup project admin and project browsing for the org level admin, but no luck.
Any advice?

Hi @Pokemon Blues

welcome to the Atlassian Community.

In Jira there are two types of projects: team-managed (aka next-gen) and company-managed (aka classic) projects. You can learn more about them in the documentation.

In your project response, there's the information "style": "classic" which identifies your project as a company-managed project. Company-managed projects only support global statuses not project-specific ones. Therefore, you simply can't do that.

What you can do:

  • Create global statuses
    Remove the project scope and add GLOBAL as type inside the scope as described in the docs.
  • Use a team-managed project
    Create a new project which is a team-managed one and move any existing issues to the new one.

Hope that helps,
