"issuetype":"issue type is required" on rest API issue creation

Using the Rest API to create jira tickets (for non Jira Users to submit issues).


I'm using the following JSON:

    "fields": {
          "key": "FR"
       "summary": "[entry.summary]",
       "description": "[entry.details]",
       "issuetype": {
          "name": "NEW FEATURE"

I've also tried NEW FEATURE as Regular Case and using 


"issuetype": {
          "id": "2"

I get the following response

{"errorMessages":[],"errors":{"issuetype":"issue type is required"}}

Any pointers on where I'm going wrong?

It look like you add wrong issue type name or id.

Please list all issue types and check if you use correct name or id (<JIRA_url>/rest/api/2/issuetype)




Hi Seba,

The only issue time I'm using in this specific FR Project is New Feature:

What url you have in your request?
