How can I update a customfield with JIRA Rest?

Hi,

I want to update a customfield with jira rest. Here is the url:

url = http://localhost:8080/rest/api/2/issue/ATL-545/editmeta

I am trying this: { \"fields\": {\"customfield_10609\": \""+Body+"\"}}

But I am getting 405 Error. How can I solve it?

Thanks in advance

editmeta is used to retrieve the fields available for editing. To update, you should use PUT on issue key.

See https://developer.atlassian.com/display/JIRADEV/JIRA+REST+API+Example+-+Edit+issues for some examples.

In the documentation, it's mentioned that you can use editmeta only to get data not PUT or POST
