I'm getting HTTPError IssueType: Issue type is required

Hello, I am currently receiving the error: HTTPError: issuetype: issue type is required


However, I have this following code which I believe follows the standards.


jira_response = jira_client.create_issue(
    fields= {
      "project": {
      "id": "test project
     "summary": 'test",
     "description": 'Test',
     "issueType": {
       "name": "Task"

Is there something I'm doing wrong?

Looks like issuetype is case sensitive. Instead of issueType it should be issuetype.
