insight rest api for executing an import says that to run an Insight import via the REST API, I should be able to just POST to /start/import/<id>.

According to the insight-import log, the import I want to execute has an ID of 30, so for my test (on-prem), I posted to https://<server>/rest/insight/1.0/import/start/30 with no body, but all I got back was "Something went wrong.  Please contact the administrator."

Is this feature not available in Insight 6.4?

just had the same problem.

You have to send a empty JSON Body with "{}"


for example via curl:

curl -u username:password -X POST -H "Content-Type: application/json" -d {} https://YOUR-JIRA/rest/insight/1.0/import/start/7
