Tempo API: worklogs POST failing with 'User is invalid' (GET is OK)

I'm trying to create a worklog via the Tempo 'worklogs' API, without success.

curl -D- -u myuser:mupassword -X POST -d @worklog.post -H "Content-Type: application/json" 'https://mydomain.atlassian.net/rest/tempo-timesheets/3/worklogs/'

 This is my JSON in the 'worklog.post' file:

{ "issue": 
    {
        "key":"MC-8948"
    },
    "comment":"This is a comment",
    "dateStarted":"2017-11-17T00:00:00.000+1200",
    "timeSpentSeconds":180
}

It fails with 

{"errors":{"worker":"User is invalid","startDate":"Date is invalid"},"errorMessages":[],"reasons":["VALIDATION_FAILED"],"flushedErrorMessages":[]}

I don't believe it's an authentication problem because I can make a GET request without any problem.

I'm under the impression that this is the right documentation, but maybe I'm wrong.

  • How do I define a "worker" that might be valid?
  • How do I define a "startDate", and how is it different from "dateStarted"?

It's all a bit of a mystery!

Thanks heaps.

PS: adding ?tempoApiToken to the URL makes no difference
