There could be two reasons


1) First and most appropriate reason is, please check the issue screen it looks this field is not available there, Simple way is , create the same issue from UI and see if the field exist there if exist, then check the ID is correct or not.


2) you don't have permission to create the issue or this field is restricted and you don't have permission
