It depends on the project. You need to call the create meta end point first... https://docs.atlassian.com/jira/REST/latest/#d2e1661

Absolute minumum - Project, Issue Type and Summary. Description is NOT mandatory.

However, Jira is configurable, and often set up to demand more than that (for example, Description...). So, one, many or all other fields available *might* be required. It depends on what you have set up and how.
