How to fix bad request in api Jira with comment


sorry if I'm in the wrong group.
I'm trying to create an issue in Jira through the webservice /jira/rest/api/2/issue.

I got it to work but when I try to add the comment if returns a 400 badrequest.
Can anybody tell me what the syntax should be for the comment?


This is my Json:

"fields": {
"key": "NNL"
,"summary": "SUMMARY"
,"description": "DESCRIPTION"
"name": "Story"
,"components": [
"name": "imported"
,"customfield_10504": "TD1212"
,"comment": "Testing comment"


Thank you

If you want to add a comment you need to use

POST /rest/api/2/issue/{issueIdOrKey}/comment

Comment is not an issue field.

Thank you for the reply and solution!
