Issue creation via REST API, modification afterwards? Edited

I have looked into creating recurring tasks via REST API: 

Thinking about the rather "complex" process of automatically creating tasks via commant to REST scheduled by CRON (my godness..) the result is very unsatisfying: The new tasks end up on the bottom of backlog, no assignee, no notification.


I couldn't get any mor information into the task at creation.

Also I couldn't add a variable for month into the task summary so i might be able to:

1. create task "Monthly ${Month}"

2. edit task "Monthly ${Month}" afterwards

Any clues how to get better results?
This is my script & result:

Your script is not reading variables out - all I can think of is trying to escape the " as you build the Data variable.

I would comment out the curl lines and then debug the script, adding in

echo $KW

echo $DATA

So you can see what it is building before sending.
