I also tried like that:
POST https://88.208***/rest/api/2/issue/13138
in body

"body": "My comment." 


"update": {
"comment": [
"add": {
"body": "It is time to finish this task"

Error is the same.
Atlassian documentation says about request parameter expand, but i don't know how to use it

I don't know what to do. Help, please

Do a POST to https://88.208***/rest/api/2/issue/13138/comment with the following JSON object:

"body": "It is time to finish this task"

Let us know how that goes!
