Can't set priority when creating an issue REST API Edited

HI, I'm using Post to creat a issue and no matter what priority ID I use , issue always comes with default 'Major' priority.

I've checked, and on create through an app it allows me to set priority.

I have alos confirmed that ID i use are indeed the correct ones.


"fields": {

"key": "<key>"

"summary": "Test asign to issue custom reporter",
"description": "TEST TEST TEST",
"issuetype": {
"name": "Feature"

"name": "Me"

"name": "Minor",
"id": "4"




"id": "<number>",
"key": "<key>",
"self": "https://<name><id>"

Hello @JacobZielinski 

Can you try this:

"priority": {
            "name": "Minor"

Or this

"priority": {
      "id": "your priority id"


It seems that you need to use just the id or the name not the two at the same time.

Hope this helps

Hi, thanks for the answer

unfortunately no matter what it does not work.

I get response and ticket is created without any issues but it always comes with major priority.
