Update single select custom field with Automation rule & REST API

yaron April 10, 2024

Hello,
I'm trying to update single select custom field with new option each time new sprint is created in a selected scrum board.
My reference is Atlassian developers guide at:
https://developer.atlassian.com/cloud/jira/platform/rest/v3/api-group-issue-custom-field-options/#api-rest-api-3-field-fieldid-context-contextid-option-post

 

My web request URL:
https://XXXXX.atlassian.net/rest/api/3/field/10559/context/10803/option

In the custom data I tried both, to send the new option together with the current existing option or only the new one I want to add.

Both times I'm getting:

Error publishing web request. Response HTTP status:
400
Error response HTTP body:
{"errorMessages":["Invalid request payload. Refer to the REST API documentation and try again."]}
See attached the reference I'm looking at and my automation rule.
Thanks,
Yaron

Hi,

I believe you are writing option instead of options in your root level array of the POST body. Hopefully this already helps.

Cheers!
