I need to add several new "issue types" to the existing schema. I can't find the method I need through rest-api.

This is the method that you are looking for if you are using Jira on Cloud.

But if you are using Jira Server/Data Center this method doesn’t exist.
You must follow the next flow by api rest:

1. Get the issuetypes of the project.

2. Create a new issuetype scheme with the issuetypes that you have got plus the new ones that you want to add.

3. Associate the new issuetype scheme with the project.

4. Delete the old issuetype scheme if you can and want to.

I hope I have helped you.

Best Regards


We followed below for adding issue type in issue type schema via REST API but it's not working and showing error (HTTP Status 405 – Method Not Allowed)

We are getting below error while following
PUT method  https://domain/rest/api/3/issuetypescheme/{issueTypeSchemeId}/issuetype

Body :{ "issueTypeIds": [ "10000", "10002", "10003" ] }

Error we getting is

<!doctype html>
<html lang="en">

Hi @Dmitrii 

I think this is what you are looking for 



I followed below curl call but still showing an error

PUT    https://domainname/rest/api/2/issuetypescheme/issuetypeschemeID

Body :

"name": "issue type name",
"description": "Anil adding issue types through REST API",
"issueTypeIds": [

"errorMessages": [
"Cannot update IssueTypeScheme because an IssueType migration would be required."
"errors": {}
