Internal Error when editing customfield Edited

I am trying to edit issue using issue.update(fields={'customfiled_10000':'edited'})

it returns response text = {"errorMessages":["Internal server error"],"errors":{}}

I can create issue and edit comments fine. Just not able to edit customfield.

Could someone help?

Traceback (most recent call last):

response text = {"errorMessages":["Internal server error"],"errors":{}}


when I create a new issue

issue= jira.create_issue(fields=root_dict)
and i can edit this issue oject with no problem

However, when I get the existing issue using

issue = jira.issue('JRA-123')
editing this issue gives me internal error.

An internal server error means something went wrong in Jira, not your code.

You'll need to read the Jira logs to discover what it was.

where is the jira log?

Under <Jira home>/logs.  You can get the full location from Jira's System Information page in the admin section.

i dont know where is <jira home>/logs, i am using python and call through the REST API.

You need to read the Jira logs.  Look at the Jira system's config in the system information pages, it will tell you where the log is.

IT blocks that, cant see it.
