Jira REST API documentation for add worklog

In the documentation for adding a worklog to a Jira issue (https://docs.atlassian.com/jira/REST/7.3.3/#api/2/issue-addWorklog) is no information about required fields. Only three parameter are mentioned (which are optional). Where can I find information about the required parameters for the post request.

And why is this information not there?

Hello,

You can find in the example which request you have to form:

{ "comment": "I did some work here.", "visibility": {
"type": "group",
"value": "jira-developers"
}, "started": "2017-03-14T10:35:37.095+0000", "timeSpentSeconds": 12000
)

I see the example. But it is just an example. It doesn't show which fields are available, it doesn't show which fields are required and optional. I don't understand why only three parameters are described.
