Unable to add comment via REST API

Tarun Sapra Community Champion Nov 26, 2013

Hi,

I am unable to add a comment via REST API and can't seem to figure out the issue.

C:\>curl -k -D- -u tsapra:xxxxx -X POST --data test.text
-H "Content-Type: application/json" https://testjira.com/rest/api/2/issue/KJA-19/comment

amd the test.txt file contains -

{

"body": "This request was originally written in French, which most of our developers can't read"

}

I have also tried with file name test.json.

I get the response ---

Try adding an "@" in front of the file name.

It works for me like this:

curl -k -D- -u pcora:sphere -X POST --data @comment.txt -H "Content-Type: application/json" http://localhost:8080/rest/api/2/issue/AWD-1/comment

hi when I use @, I get the following error.

Warning: Couldn't read data from file "test.text", this makes an empty POST.

Is the filename test.text or test.txt?
