Assign a JIRA issue via a Webservice


I have an urgent requirement to Assign a JIRA issue by completing the Assignee and Comment fields via a Webservice.

I normally access my JIRA issue by login via a URL link such as :

Manually click on Assign Button, complete the Assignee and Comment fields then click on the Assign Button to save.

Can anybody help with the JIRA Webservice api's I need and authorised login. So I can programtically perform these actions.

Kind Regards

You can use curl command or CLi clients or python rest client for JIRA - 

Hi Tarun

My JIRA test issue is :

I tried the curl command to update the Issue Comment :

curl -D- -X GET -H "Authorization: Basic YWRlLmFkZWtveWFAc2ctZ2FtaW5nLmNvbTpHYW1pbmcxMDA=" POST --data {"body": "This is a comment regarding the quality of the response."} -H "Content-Type: application/json"

This command failed can you let me know the correct URL and correct curl command please?
