Subtask customfield update by Rest Api

Hi ,

Can anyone suggest how to update customfields of a subtask by Rest api script.

I am trying by api/2/issue/{issueorkey}   and in put statement i am posting like :

{"fields":
{
"customfield_10967": "ABC"
}

 

however it gives below error :

 

{
"errorMessages": [
"Unexpected end-of-input: expected close marker for OBJECT (from [Source: com.quisapps.jira.fieldsecurity.filter.RequestWrapper$1@d037060; line: 1, column: 0])\n at [Source: com.quisapps.jira.fieldsecurity.filter.RequestWrapper$1@d037060; line: 4, column: 44]"
]
}

 

My Customfield is of textarea type.

please suggest.

 

Thank you

Hi Prakhtar,

You have a missing bracket in your JSON it should be 

{"fields": 
{
"customfield_10967": "ABC"
}}

Thanks Peter , Now I am getting this :

 

{
"errorMessages": [],
"errors": {
"customfield_12621": "Field 'customfield_12621' cannot be set. It is not on the appropriate screen, or unknown."
}
}

 

this is newly created customfield of the type textarea and currently not on front end.

In order to be able to set the value of the custom field you will have to set its configuration right(context and screens) first. If it is not visible in the front end you wont be able to modify its value
