Can't figure out API create issue problem Edited



i need to be able to create issues on multiple projects when a specific transition is done in a project (multi-tenant environment). i though i could use the REST API with a CURL-based script  to do so, but i have some issue with it.


- i login to REST API just fine

 curl -s -c "cookies.txt" -H "X-Atlassian-Token: no-check" -d "os_username=$USERNAME" -d "os_password=$PASSWORD" -d "os_cookie=true" $JIRA_URL/login.jsp --output login.html

- i query the createmeta method and i get a response 

curl -u $USERNAME:$PASSWORD "$JIRA_URL/rest/api/2/issue/createmeta?projectKeys=$PROJECT_KEY&expand=projects.issuetypes.fields" -H "X-Atlassian-token: no-check" --output out/$PROJECT_KEY.INC_CREATE_INFO.out --silent

- i generate the JSON representation considering the fields i can see as mandatory in the "Create Issue" screen:

"fields": {
"project": {
"id": "11226"
"issuetype": {
"id": "10306"
"summary": "test from api",
"description": "test from api",
"assignee": {
"name": "level1"
"reporter": {
"name": "level1"
"priority": {
"id": "10001"
"security": {
"id": "10101"
"customfield_10701": "ITSEC-9087",
"customfield_10401": { "id": "12122"},
"customfield_11801": { "id": "12359"},
"customfield_10702": { "id": "10604"},
"customfield_10302": { "id": "11200"},
"customfield_11700": { "id": "12301"},
"customfield_10602": { "id": "10500"},
"customfield_10606": { "id": "10507"},
"customfield_10603": { "id": "10505"},
"customfield_10709": 100,
"customfield_10704": 100

- when i run the JSON in the REST API Browser, it works fine:

- when i run it in the script, it's not working and i have no error
