"project": {
    "key":"DevOps_Touch & Feel (DF)"

That is definitely not the Project Key, looks more like the Name.

yes that is the name. What do i need to give as key?

Well.. the Project Key, obviously.

ASDDDD or REWR or RQW in the following example


Were you able to resolve it, Even after adding key , I am getting issue

JSONObject fields = new JSONObject();
JSONObject project = new JSONObject();
project.put("key", "1");
project.put("id", "intqm");
//fields.put("project", "1");
// fields.put("issuetype", new JSONObject().put("id", issuetypeid.toString()));
// fields.put("summary", "Test from JiraRestClient");
//fields.put("description", "Lorem ipsum...");

JSONObject issue = new JSONObject();
issue.put("fields", fields);
