API changing status from Open to Done no permissions?

I am using the API to change a status of an issue.

If I run a transition change from In Progress to Done, it works, so does Open to In Progress.


But if I try to change from Open to Done, I will get the following 400 response:


"Can't move (SPO-835). You might not have permission, or the issue is missing required information. If you keep having this problem, contact your Jira Administrator."


If I try to change the status from Open to Done directly in JIRA, it will work.

Why is that happening?

Hi @Ben Berizovsky,

Do you have any conditions, validators or transition properties set on the transition from open to done, that you do not have set on the other transition?

Are you using the same account in the gui and with the API?

Don't see any validators for that, and yes I am using the same account, using it's API token for basic-auth.

Are there any screens on that transition?

Hi @Ben Berizovsky

Could be a number or reasons. Are you authenticating with the same user as you are performing this action in Jira? Can you show me what your request looks like? 

Kind regards

Edit: forgot to look at question tags, so now know you use cloud :)

Hi @Ben Berizovsky 

Would like to know if this issue is resolved? I am facing the same problem.

Best regards,
