Creating Issue via REST API

I want to create an issue in a Jira project using the REST API. I used a working url + the following ending provided by Atlassian: "/rest/api/2/issue" for POST.

Since the project is different to the sample data provided in Atlassian´s guide (

I shortened it to make it suitable for my project and used XYZ in here. The real project has a different key.

"fields": {
"project": {
"key": "XYZ"
"summary": "something's wrong",
"issuetype": {
"name": "Incoming Invoice"
"reporter": {
"name": "smithers"


If I wanted to create the issue using the UI it looks like this. 


As an error I get the following: message: "{\"errorMessages\":[\"Unexpected character ('f' (code 102)): was expecting a colon to separate field name and value\\n"

This isn´t that relevant but I used UIPath to connect to Jira via Rest Api.
