How can I update a customfield with JIRA Rest?


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 for some examples.

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