Add a WorkLog When editing an issue using PUT

Hi,

Can anyone please help by giving the JSON format on adding a new WorkLog when editing an issue using PUT? We tried with the below format but we are gettign BAD Request error.

{

"update": {

"worklog":

[{

"add": {

"timeSpent": "1h 30m",

"started": "2013-09-01T10:30:18.932+0530",

"comment": "logging via PUT"

}

}],

}

}

Without worklog, if I try to add a label/comment then it works.

{

"update": {

"labels": [ {"add": "test"},{"add": "jira"},{"remove": "api"}],

"comment":

[{

"add": {

"body": "Test Summary Comment"

}

}]

}

}

Thanks,

I am not sure that it is possible in issue update routine - as you cannot add worklog entry during edit - only change estimates.

If you want to add worklog - please use https://docs.atlassian.com/jira/REST/latest/#d2e3891POSt method with needed parameters.
