their and example and then the schema.... the example has reporter and assignee but not in the schema. Where are those defined ???? 

At the end, I need to know what field are valid for assignee and reporter...

Hi Jean,

When you are creating an issues via API you can populate all the system fields/ Custom fields that you have in Jira.

To find the id of a Custom field:

1.Open a ticket in browser

2.Right Click on the fieldCustom.PNG and then Inspect Element

When you create an issue, the reporter can at least be 'name' or 'id'. If you inspect an issue, you will have the result of the DB query and one answer, in the case highlighted above is id (for the "Problem regarding to" 'field'). It does not provide all the possibilities to write to this field.
