Update existing issue field data in JIRA using rest api

Edited

I have created a rest api to access an issue in JIRA. If I edit value of a field and save it using a button click, how to update the new value in that corresponding issue replacing the old value?

I have viewed the following links regarding editing and updating issues, but do not have idea how to access them.

1) Editing issue
2) Updating issue

Have added a sample code using PUT in request as follows,

AP.require(['request'], function(request) {
request({
url: 'https://mysite.atlassian.net/rest/api/2/issue/XYZ-5',
type: 'PUT',
data: {
"fields": {"assignee":{"name":"harry"}}
},
success: function(response) {
alert("success");
document.location.reload();
},
error: function (response) {
alert('fail... ');
}
});
});

But I get an error 403 - as no permission to access.

Can anyone help me with a basic example for updating values in an issue?

It looks to me like your code is not logging you in.  Without a login, you don't have permission to updates the issue.

I am using the same procedure to get the issue details using request and also able to access fields using the below code,

AP.require(['request'], function(request) {
request({
url: 'https://mysite.atlassian.net/rest/api/2/issue/XYZ-5',
type: 'GET',
success: function(response) {
alert("success");
},
error: function (response) {
alert('fail... ');
}
});
});

Again, your code does not appear to log in, so it has no permission to do things.

Using the above code GET method worked for me, only POST didn't work. So, can you please help me working with Edit Issues using POST method with a basic example.
