Field 'summary' cannot be set

Hi there,

I'm trying to create an issue using Jira Rest API.
I'm trying to do that through the Airbrake service using our integration.
When sending, Jira API has returned:
Field 'summary' cannot be set. it is not on the appropriate screen, or unknown.

This is just happening for this account: and user which this account belongs to told me that he has Summary field on his default screen scheme.
We are sending JSON like this:
"fields" => {
"project" => {
"key" => options[:project_key]
"summary" => title(options[:group]),
"issuetype" => {
"name" => "Bug"
"labels" => [
"environment" => environment(options[:group]),
"description" => body(options[:group])
and like I said, this problem is just on that Jira account.
Thank you for your help

Hey Ben. did that work before?

i guess since Jira 6 it shouldn't by default and i bet OnDemand uses 6 as well.

JSON-P no longer supported

JSON-P will not be supported in JIRA 6.0 for security reasons: it is possible for an attacker use this to view information in a JIRA instance that they do not have permission to see.

Yes it worked before.
I'm on onDemand too (Atlassian JIRA v6.0-OD-14-WN) like this user and it's working perfectly for me.
What do you think?
