#The basic use case
my $client = REST::Client->new();

#A host can be set for convienience

my $headers = { Authorization => 'Basic '. encode_base64($user . ':' . $pass)};

my $jsonparams =add input data here

$client->Post( '/rest/api/2/issue',$jsonparams , $headers );

if( $client->responseCode() eq '200' ){
print "Updated\n";

# print the result
print $client->responseContent() . "\n";

# to convert the data into a hash, use the JSON module
my $res_data = from_json( $client->responseContent() );

the input string something like this

{"fields": {
