Create issue with JWT Authorization



I'm trying to create an issue with the JIRA API using an Atlassian Connect App made with express.

My issue is that when I send a POST request to "/rest/api/latest/issue", it create an issue but doesn't set the assignee.



And when a I try to set the reporter, I just recieve an error  : "Reporter is required."



My JWT Token is valid and created using atlassian-jwt package.

Hi @Alexis TALON ,

Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

I believe the issue you are facing is related to the Major changes to Jira Cloud REST APIs to improve user privacy .

In short, name and key are gonna be removed and you should use accountId instead.

Also, for the future, please notice that this is not the best place to get help on development  related questions.
