Jira create Defect Fix version issue through API



We are trying to raise defects in Jira using Jira rest apis. Please find below details regarding the api we are using.







"summary":"Invalid bug raised from api",



"description":"this bug was raised from jira rest api to test qrace integration",

"customfield_10404":{"value" : "Medium"},

"customfield_10403":{"value" : "Development" },

"fixVersions":[{"name":"TL - Origination Bouquet" }]

















We are not able to generate defect using api. We are getting following error :


    "errorMessages": [],

    "errors": {

        "fixVersions": "Field 'fixVersions' cannot be set. It is not on the appropriate screen, or unknown."




We have checked project configuration for fixed versions field, which looks properly configured. We are not sure what is the issue. Please raise ticket with Jira support team to resolve the issue .

Hi @vashim shekh 

As long as fixVersion isn't mandatory in your Jira instance, try leaving that field out and see if you're able to create a defect.

Alternatively, what that message is telling you is that the field needs to appear on your Create screen. Every field that you have in your JSON for creating an issue needs to show on the Create screen within Jira.
