Update fixVersions in REST API

Dear Community,


I would like to update an existing issue. I use following REST Call:


curl -u admin:admin -s  -X PUT --data '{"fields":{"fixVersions":[{"version":"1.8.0"}]}}' -H 'Content-Type: application/json' https://jira/rest/api/2/issue/ISSUE-1

 The response is empty. What am I doing wrong?

Try this:

curl -D- -u admin:admin -X PUT --data '{"update":{"fixVersions":[{"set": [ {"name":"1.8.0"} ] }]}}' -H "Content-Type: application/json" https://jira/rest/api/2/issue/ISSUE-1

I am sorry, but this call is not working. 


{"errorMessages":["Can not deserialize instance of java.util.ArrayList out of START_OBJECT token\\n at [Source: org.apache.catalina.connector.CoyoteInputStream@3956ce; line: 1, column: 12] (through reference chain:[\\"update\\"])"]}

Hmm, what is your JIRA version?

This works for me. However, it overwrote the existing values. What option to use for appending the new value instead?

The JSON needs to be like this: 

let JiraClient = require("jira-connector");

let labels = ["label1", "label2", "label3", "label4"];
let jiraIssueLabels = [];
let fixVersionsLabels = [ {"add" : {"name" : "release_TEST"}} ];

labels.forEach(label => jiraIssueLabels.push({"add": label}));

let bodyData = { issueId: `ENG-224`,
issue: {
update: {
labels: jiraIssueLabels,
fixVersions: fixVersionsLabels



More simply: 

issueId: `ENG-224`,
issue: {
update: {
fixVersions:  [ {"add" : {"name" : "release_TEST"}} ]


Note: the fixVersions value (ex: release_TEST) must already exist in Jira to work
