How can I add 'assignee' to JIRA issue request via POSTMAN?


No matter where I put the assignee parameter in the body of the request, it does not populate in the Issue that I'm creating in JIRA. I'm a bit new working with JIRA's REST API so my ticket request is pretty simple (not much custom fields at all -but Im working slowly getting there).

However, I believe the format/syntax is right because I'm not getting an error parsing JSON message error in the response. And the ticket is still being created in JIRA even when I have 'assignee' in the body of the request. Having the 'assignee would be a neat feature to have automatically generated through the request for notifications Service purposes.

Can't I place 'assignee' param go anywhere on this request? I've tried in a few spots with no luck.

  "fields": {
    "project": {
      "key": "QA"
    "summary": "Failure detected",
    "description": {
      "type": "doc",
      "version": 1,
      "content": [
          "type": "paragraph",
          "content": [
              "type": "text",
              "text": "Failure has occurred in POSTMAN"
    "issuetype": {
      "name": "Task"
  "assignee": {
      "id": ""

Which creates this ticket (Screen Shot):

@Ghulam Murtazaif you are using Jira Cloud, you can put the accountId in quotes, like the example bellow.

  "assignee": {
      "id": "21435654322fdgvsdfsd"

 Remembering that the assignee must have a license and permission to be assigned to the project.

I hope I helped you.

If your question has not been resolved, please post again with more details.

Similarly, I'm in a branching to find one issue using JQL then update the trigger issue's assignee from the one issue's assignee.

           "fields" : {
{{triggerIssue.assignee}} : { "id": "{{ issue.assignee.accountId}}" }

is invalid JSON and this is ironically in Server version
