Multi-issue custom field update over REST

Liz Frost I'm New Here Apr 26, 2022

I'm trying to update a custom field on a lot of issues, and I've found the `/issues/properties/multi` experimental endpoint. However, I cannot get my requests to work with custom fields.

I'm making requests like this:

{
"issues": [
{
"issueID": 247406,
"properties": {
"customfield_12398": [
{
"value": "builder",
"id": 12447
}
]
}
}
]
}

I've tried several variations on this, including:

{
"issues": [
{
"issueID": 247406,
"properties": {
"customfield_12398": [12447]
]
}
}
]
}  

I've tried several variations on this, including:

{
"issues": [
{
"issueID": 247406,
"properties": {
"customfield_12398": ["builder"]
]
}
}
]
}  

 

All these are happily accepted by the endpoint, and it reports no errors, but there are no changes to the field.

I know this endpoint is experimental, but I'm hoping to avoid sending several thousand `/issue/:id/edit` requests.
