Hello Avitesh,

Welcome to Atlassian Community!

It's possible to create a ticket via REST Api with approvers, but in this case, it will be necessary to add the field id.

Multi-user picker custom field - A custom UI field that enables multiple users to be selected.

"customfield_11458" : [ { "name":"inigomontoya" }, { "name":"tommytomtomahawk" }]

On "name" you will add QM id (if it's a customer) or the Atlassian account id (for agents).

Here is the template that I used and that successfully created a ticket with approvers:

curl --request POST \
--url '' \
--user '' \
--header 'Accept: application/json' \
--header 'Content-Type: application/json' \
--data '{
"serviceDeskId": "12",
"requestTypeId": "223",
"requestFieldValues": {
"summary": "Request JSD help via REST",
"description": "I need a new *mouse* for my Mac",
"customfield_10100": [{ "name":"1a23b45cde67f89g1h23ij4k" }]
