add a comment while changing issue status by REST

Hi,

I am trying to add a comment while changing issue status by rest api. 

curl -D- -u admin:admin -X POST --data @/Users/ziyan/Desktop/test.json -H "Content-Type: application/json" https://mytestingurl.atlassian.net/rest/api/2/issue/ZD-25/transitions?expand=transitions.fields

Here is the JSON:

{
    "transition": {
        "id": "61"
    },
    "update": {
        "comment": [
            {
                "add": {
                    "body": "Bug has been fixed."
                }
            }
        ]
    }
}

For some reason, I get the 204 response and have my status changed, but I am unable to add the comment. What could possibly go wrong?

Please help! Thanks

I believe that you just have the order wrong.  Try this and it should work:

JSON:

{
    "update": {
        "comment": [
            {
                "add": {
                    "body": "Comment added when transitioning issue"
                }
            }
        ]
    },
    "transition": {
        "id": "61"
    }
}

That doesn't change anything :(

Is the comment posting if you remove the transition? 

I figured out the answer. You can only add a comment while transitioning by REST if you require a comment for transitioning in UI. Thanks for your help Brant.
