Unable to create Issue Using JIRA API

Hello Team,

I am trying to create Issue using provided API in JIRA documentation but it doesn't seems to be working.

Though I have made minimum payload but used to get error as:

"errorMessages": [
"The issue no longer exists."
"errors": {}
"update": {

"fields": {
"summary": "Main order flow broken",
"parent": {
"key": "RAL"
"issuetype": {
"id": "10102"
"project": {
"id": "10100"
"description": "Order entry fails when selecting supplier."
Let me know If I am doing something wrong

Hi @Amit Saxena ,

welcome to the Atlassian community!

I think that you are passing wrong fields to the REST api. Take a llok to the following guide

In particular, "parent" param should be used just if you need to create a subtask and parent should contain the parent issue key. 

The correct params should be the following:

{ "fields": { "project": { "key": "TEST" }, "summary": "REST ye merry gentlemen.", "description": "Creating of an issue using project keys and issue type names using the REST API", "issuetype": { "name": "Bug" } } }

Hope this helps,


Thanks Fabio.

I was following

Can see the key mismatch. where I was trying to add option items for custom single select field but getting 


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
Is there a different developed doc I have to follow??

Hi @Amit Saxena ,

it seems that there are no Rest api for this
