Create Project in Server with REST API

I am trying to create a project using the REST API

curl --request POST \
--url '' \
--user 'admin_user:admin_password' \
--header 'Accept: application/json' \
--header 'Content-Type: application/json' \
--data '{
"description": "Example Project description",
"lead": "myuser",
"url": "",
"projectTemplateKey": "com.atlassian.jira-core-project-templates:jira-core-project-management",
"name": "Curl Example",
"assigneeType": "PROJECT_LEAD",
"projectTypeKey": "business",
"key": "ABC004",
"issueSecurityScheme": 10000,
"categoryId": 10300,
"avatarId" : 10324,
"permissionScheme": 0,
"notificationScheme": 10000,
"workflowSchemeId": 10900


But I get a internal server error

{"errorMessages":["Internal server error"],"errors":{}}


I have used the API to confirm all the projectTemplateKey, issueSecurityScheme, CategoryID,. permissionScheme, notificationScheme and workflowSchemeID are correct values.


My searching is not finding anything, does any one have any idea please?

You need a Jira admin to check the log for the precise error but the url looks a bit suspicious. I guess I'd also create a new project from my browser and inspect the REST call and data passed to the server
