How to edit customfields in closed Jira issue using Rest API?

Hi,

I am able to edit Customfields in jira issue which are not in Closed state through Rest API from C# code as followes. 

string jSonContent = string.Concat(@"{ ""fields"" : { ""customfield_12160"": [ """, ReporterLabel ,@""" ], ""customfield_12151"": """, LatestInformation, @"""}}");

 request.AddParameter("application/json", jSonContent, ParameterType.RequestBody);

 

But I am getting error to edit customfields in closed Jira issue as below.

JIRA-XXXX: {"errorMessages":[],"errors":{"customfield_12160":"Field 'customfield_12160' cannot be set. It is not on the appropriate screen, or unknown.","customfield_12151":"Field 'customfield_12151' cannot be set. It is not on the appropriate screen, or unknown."}}

Pleas let me know the actual method to edit closed jira issues also.

Thanks in advance.

I suspect the workflow for the issue has the "do not allow edit on this issue" property set on the "closed" status.

You will need to transition the issue out of "closed", or change the workflow to remove the property.
