Set User Property with API

Hi all,


we want store some information along with our customer/user accounts. (phone numbers, etc..)

I have tried to use the api i can't get it work - maybe someone could help me.


According to the rest documentation (Set User Properties) i have to send the property i want to add like that:

curl -D- -u api:mypass -X PUT -k https://jira.domain.local:8443/rest/api/2/user/properties/phonetest?username=username


this gives me an error: {"errorMessages":["The property value can not be empty."],"errors":{}}

i have tried to add &value=myvalue but that doesn't work...

also the rest documentation do not say how to submit the value for the new property, the only parameter which documented are userkey and username

you should provide JSON with your REST call, in which you pass the value:

{"value":"your value"}

Thank You!

That works!
