Using REST API

Hello,

According to documentation there is an option to add the custom field to the screen. 

https://docs.atlassian.com/jira/REST/latest/#d2e3775

But there is no example how to use it. The delete command is working properly (without --data section), but I can't find the solution for adding field. Here you can find my command:
 

curl -D- -u xxx:yyy -X POST --data '{"name", "resttest"}' -H "Content-Type: application/json"  https://jira.xxx.com/rest/api/2/screens/13410/tabs/13680/fields

I got this error:

 

{"errorMessages":["Unrecognized field \"name\" (Class com.atlassian.jira.rest.v2.issue.AddFieldBean), not marked as ignorable\n at [Source: org.apache.catalina.connector.CoyoteInputStream@56c5b8da; line: 1, column: 11] (through reference chain: com.atlassian.jira.rest.v2.issue.AddFieldBean[\"name\"])"]}[root@bjweb001-qa-ein01 RollUpIssueStatus]

Thanks for help in advance!

This widget could not be displayed.

Hi, Hubert.

This error seems to be saying that the field you want to add to the screen doesn't exist. Are you sure that the field 'Name' exists? You should check its name.

 

Kind regards.
