How to fix bad request in api Jira with comment

Jerry I'm New Here Dec 27, 2017


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.
