Setting jira.title and jira.baseUrl using the JIRA REST API


I am trying to update the baseUrl (jira.baseurl) and Title (jira.title) vias the JIRA REST API and cannot complete this task

The API guide I'm using is and I can successfully update other settings using the same credentials (a JIRA user in the jira-administrators group)

The commandline API calls I've tried are:

curl -i -u administrator:xxxx -X PUT --data '{ "baseUrl", "https://newserver/jira" } ' -H "Content-Type=application/json"https://server/jira/rest/api/2/settings/baseUrl 

curl -i -u administrator:xxxx -X PUT -d 'https://newserver/jira'https://server/jira/rest/api/2/settings/baseUrl 

Could anyone please advise me on the correct API calls.

Many Thanks

Hi Chris,

You can try the following query

curl -i -u admin:admin -X PUT --data "https://newserver/jira" -H "Content-Type: application/json" https://server/jira/rest/api/2/settings/baseUrl
