Updating Behaviour mapping with rest API


I use the behaviour module of ScriptRunner on my Jira environment with 20 differents configurations.
I have two needs :

  1. I want to automate the association of a new project to a behavior according to the project category. 
    I have no idea how to do now, so if you have suggestion, you're welcome !
  2. I want to use behaviour API to add new mapping between project and configuration without erasing the current mapping

For the second subject, I saw that I can use the base-url/rest/scriptrunner/behaviours/1.0/config rest API, posting a new XML of my mapping but it's erasing the old one...

I found two other rest API but I don't find any documentation on them :


I Tried to post the following Json, but it doesn't work...


{"id" : 1,
"name": "Behavior1",
"description": "test",
"mappings": [
"type": "PROJECT",
"project": {
"id": 20000,
"name": "Project 1",
"key": "P1"
"issuetype": {
"id": "0",
"name": "All issue types",}
"type": "PROJECT",
"project": {
"id": 20002,
"name": "Project 2",
"key": "P2"
"issuetype": {
"id": 12200,
"name": "Work Item"



Any suggestions ?

Thank in advance.

Best regards,

I finaly found a solution, this code works : 


def http = new HTTPBuilder("yoururl/rest/scriptrunner/behaviours/1.0/admin/mapping")
def authString = "username:password".getBytes().encodeBase64().toString();

http.request(Method.POST, ContentType.JSON) {
headers."Authorization" = "Basic ${authString}"
headers.contentType = "application/json"
body = "{ \"behaviourId\": \"1\", \"type\": \"PROJECT\", \"projectIds\": [\"${projectID}\"], \"issueTypeIds\": [\"10900\"]}"

response.success = { resp, JSON ->
log.warn("Successful = " + JSON)

response.failure = { resp, JSON ->
log.warn("Failed = " + JSON)


Thanks for following up your own question and showing it's possible! I'm trying to do this with a python script as part of creating a new project. I'm getting a 200 response, but nothing updates in Behaviors.

def addMapping(p_id, b_id):
print(f"adding {p_id} to behavior {b_id}")
url = f"{BASE_URL}/rest/scriptrunner/behaviours/1.0/admin/mapping"
payload = json.dumps({
"behaviourId": f"{b_id}",
"type": "PROJECT",
"projectId": f"{p_id}",
"issueTypeId": "3"
r = requests.request("POST", url, auth=(UNAME, PW), headers=HTTP_HEADERS, data=payload)
rson = r.json()
print("response code = %s" % r.status_code)

addMapping(25701, 6)

 I initially omitted "issuetypeid" and played with different names for the projectid, like "projectIds" "id" "ID" etc. TIA.
