Read an issue from JIRA rest api

Hi guys,

Im try to create a new issue from a python script BUT using a dict.

However the api say that i have no permission for do that (not even if i want to see an issue)

how can i fix that?

import base64
import urlparse
from tlslite.utils import keyfactory
import oauth2 as oauth
from jira.client import JIRA

from jira.client import JIRA

jira = JIRA()
jac = JIRA(options={'server': 'https://xxx.atlassian.net'})

key_cert_data = None
with open('./jira.pem', 'r') as key_cert_file:
        key_cert_data = key_cert_file.read()
        oauth_dict = {
                'access_token': 'xxxxxx',
                'access_token_secret': 'xxxxxx',
                'consumer_key': 'hardcore',
                'key_cert': key_cert_data
        }
        authed_jira = JIRA(oauth=oauth_dict)
        issue = jira.issue('LEET-1')

Check if the user that is logging to browse the issue has permissions to open this issue through the interface. The user making the REST call needs to have the proper Project Permissions to view the issue on the interface.

jira.exceptions.JIRAError: HTTP 400: "{u'description': u"Field 'description' cannot be set. It is not on the appropriate screen, or unknown.", u'summary': u"Field 'summary' cannot be set. It is not on the appropriate screen, or unknown."}"

I can actually do it from jirashell itself.

I'm doing something wrong code side?

from jira.client import JIRA

jira = JIRA()

jac = JIRA(options={'server': 'https://einyxx.atlassian.net'})

key_cert_data = None

with open('./jira.pem', 'r') as key_cert_file:

key_cert_data = key_cert_file.read()

oauth_dict = {

'access_token': 'jSD2JuIGdkOsqZA5QCo0yBtFaJDYIsxb',

'access_token_secret': '0qQUZHvSjToz0UC7OkwxaN8uWXuTXM4d',

'consumer_key': 'hardcore',

'key_cert': key_cert_data

}

authed_jira = JIRA(oauth=oauth_dict)

issue_dict = {

'project': {'key': 'LEET'},

'issuetype': {'name': 'Bug'},

}

new_issue = jira.create_issue(fields=issue_dict)
