Not able to start sprint using python-jira API

I am trying to start a sprint using python-JIRA API:

jira.update_sprint(13, state='ACTIVE')

 

I seeing following error:

esponse text = {"message":"Unrecognized field \"state\" (Class com.atlassian.greenhopper.web.rapid.sprint.model.UpdateSprintRequest), not marked as ignorable\n at [Source: org.apache.catalina.connector.CoyoteInputStream@15ae364; line: 1, column: 12] (through reference chain: com.atlassian.greenhopper.web.rapid.sprint.model.UpdateSprintRequest[\"state\"])","status-code":500,"stack-trace":"org.codehaus.jackson.map.exc.UnrecognizedPropertyException: Unrecognized field \"state\" (Class com.atlassian.greenhopper.web.rapid.sprint.model.UpdateSprintRequest), not marked as ignorable\n at [Source: org.apache.catalina.connector.CoyoteInputStream@15ae364; line: 1, column: 12] (through reference chain: com.atlassian.greenhopper.web.rapid.sprint.model.UpdateSprintRequest[\"state\"])\n\tat org.codehaus.jackson.map.exc.UnrecognizedPropertyException.from(UnrecognizedPropertyException.java:53)\n\tat org.codehaus.jackson.map.deser.StdDeserializationContext.unknownFieldException(StdDeserializationContext.java:267)\n\tat org.codehaus.jackson.map.deser.std.StdDeserializer.reportUnknownProperty(StdDeserializer.java:673)\n\tat org.codehaus.jackson.map.deser.std.StdDeserializer.handleUnknownProperty(StdDeserializer.java:659)\n\tat org.co

 

Please someone help with this.

It looks like the python-JIRA API is sending data that JIRA does not need or expect.

Have you tried making the call over the REST API (this is what the python wrapper calls, so it's worth checking if that gives a similar error)?

 

Can you point me such link, how i can call those APIs from python.

See https://docs.atlassian.com/jira-software/REST/latest/#agile/1.0/sprint and have a look at the "update" call which starts sprints.
