JIRA REST api for Create Project (Version - v7.6.0)

Hi All

I am trying to create a project using REST api using a sample java program. It keeps giving me 400 error. I have tried the GET api and i am getting back the projects.

I have installed locally on my laptop and the java code is also running on the same. running

Not sure if there is anything wrong with the way I am forming the json , below is the json


I have not created any schemes for notification, issue or permissions. For avatarid I gave the id which I saw from my GET response to projects. I am not sure about category so gave it as 0.

Please Help

Hello Ramesh,


I ran a REST call to create a project with your JSON data and it does give me a 400 error too. I inspected the response it gave me and it says the field "avatarid" is unrecognized. The correct field is "avatarId".


After that, I had to chan the avatarId value to have something that exists on my instance, and do the same for the lead. I also had to remove the fields "issueSecurityScheme" and "categoryId", it didn't seem to like the fact that the id was 0. It worked after that.
