How do update Story Point uisng the Issue ID

Hi Team,

I wanted to just update Story Point using the issue id, I tried the below request

URL -<Issue ID or Key>

Method: PUT


    "updates": {
        "fields": {
    "errorMessages": [
        "one of 'fields' or 'update' required"
    "errors": {}
Here I just wanted to update the Story Point for a particular story. I don't want to update other properties.
Could someone please help here?

Hi @pranab_bhatta 

Welcome to the Atlassian Community!!

First, get the issue ID from the GET request

Next for the sprint, you need to have the custom field ID as in this case my site's custom field was customfield_10020

You need to make the PUT call to update the sprint

curl -i --request PUT \
--url '' \
--user 'email:token' \
--header 'Accept: application/json' \
--header 'Content-Type: application/json' \
--data '{ "fields": { "customfield_10020": 3 } }'


Hi Pramodh - Thanks for the reply.


I tried, but getting below error -

    "errorMessages": [],
    "errors": {
        "customfield_10002""Field 'customfield_10002' cannot be set. It is not on the appropriate screen, or unknown."
I have used the Issue ID or Key to update the story point.
