Why does editmeta not work through curl?

So I am trying to edit Jira issues using REST API.


I type in /rest/api/2/issue/{issueid}/editmeta in my browser, and the json shows up.


However when I try curl with my user login, I get back {"fields":{}}


Because of this I can't edit any of the fields of a Jira Issue via REST: summary, priority, project, description, you name it.


So just looking at the REST api tutorial don't seem to help because I think I have a different issue.

Can you post the whole curl command you were using? Redact sensitive parts.
