Hi Showkat,

If I understand your request you would like to edit existing issues including those with custom fields. An example message to update assignee, priority and 2 custom fields for the issue QA-31 would be :

curl -D- -u fred:fred -X PUT --data {see below} -H "Content-Type: application/json" http://kelpie9:8081/rest/api/2/issue/QA-31

example input data

{
"fields":
{
"summary":"CLONE - Testing label stuff",
"assignee":{"name":"harry"},
"priority":{"id":"2"},
"customfield_10010":["asdf","centre","champs","charge","confluence"],
"customfield_10071":["purple pants"]
}
}

There are a lot of other great examples of JIRA REST API available from here:

Thanks,

Just wasn't sure if I am allowed to edit any issues in On demand using this process
