How to define 'Team' information through JIRA REST API?


How to define 'Team' information through JIRA REST API? It gives always an error: "text: Field 'Team' cannot be set. It is not on the appropriate screen, or unknown."

Team can be defined with browser but it's not even visible in REST API after that. Can it be handled through REST API at all?

Thanks in advance!

Simo- Are you referring to a custom field or the Team used by Tempo? If it is the one used by tempo it is teamId=1  where the number 1 would be changed to the number for the team.


Hi! It's a good question. ;) I think we are not using Tempo. So it has to be some custom field. But I'll figure that out...

I was referring to a custom field. :) It came out by filling the Team field by browser and comparing the API output to the output without Team info.

Good to hear you figured it out :)

bump for this, I am having the same appears to be customfield_10800 for me. when I hit the endpoint using GET I get a structure like

"customfield_10800": { "id": "168", "title": "something", "isShared": true }

where "something" is my team name. However, when I use the same structure in my POST request, I get the error

"customfield_10800": "The Team must be a string"

any advice?

edit: resolved, apparently the value of my custom field should have just been the id
