Error Version id is not valid inserting issue via api.

I'm trying to insert an issue via the jira api (from Zapier).

When I pass a version no. to the 'fixVersions' field I'm getting the following error:

400: {"errorMessages":[],"errors":{"fixVersions":"Version id '' is not valid"}}".

Version exists.

My concern is that it mentions the term 'Version id'. Does this mean I need to obtain the internal jira version id rather than the passing in the version name?

When you pass fixVersions you should pass like this

"fixVersions": [
"name": "1.0"


User name parameter, not id
