ConfiForm -Component/s error Edited

Hi All,

I'm new to ConfiForms.

I created a ConfiForms Form were the results are to be used to create a Jira issue using the IFTTT integration rules.

I'm getting error on System field "Component/s" and its a required field in that particular project.

Could someone help me how to describe JSON for that particular field?

Bad practice but if you still want to do it the documentation is your freind.

Setting the components field


Copycurl \ -D- \ -u charlie:charlie \ -X PUT \ --data {see below} \ -H "Content-Type: application/json" \ http://localhost:8080/rest/api/2/issue/QA-31

This is an example input data:

Copy{ "update" : { "components" : [{"set" : [{"name" : "Engine"}, {"name" : "Trans/A"}]}] } }

Field names are case sensitive!

Components != components

You are also missing a comma after the "TestComponent1"}], <----- comma is missing

@Alex Medved _ConfiForms_  Thanks!


I edited the comma and adjusted the Components,

Still I'm getting the same error.

Could you please help me to resolve it?

You could not be getting the same error if you have changed the name and fixed the JSON mapping.


Also, please check if you actually can set the components on Jira issue when you create the issue in Jira via UI (of type "Task" in INF project)

Do you see "components" field there (in JIra Create Issue form)?


Yes I can see,

Please check the screen shot and components is system field with multi selected option and it's a required field for the "Task" issue type to the particular project.

How does the complete (jira issue JSON) mapping looks like?

Sorry!! I didn't get you.

On Confluence/ConfiForms side you have a JSON mapping (in IFTTT macro body)

how does it look like now?

Sorry, but I was asking about the macro body, no macro properties...

Something what you have on your initial screenshot, but current


Currently I'm trying with different JSON syntex, 
But I didn't  get the result, not sure how to set.image.png

But setting components in Jira is done differently!

You should really consult the documentation for Jira API - there is nothing to do with ConfiForms here... 

"components" : [{"name" : "Network [entry.tname]"}]

 (and you had it almost right initially, but then moved to something else - really dont understand why)

Also, in your mapping you have a },} in the end.. WHY do you have a ","? Jira expects a valid JSON to be posted


Now I'm getting this error,




OK, and what do you ask?

I believe the error message is self explaining - you dont have a component by name "Network" registered... and therefore it is not valid as an input
