JSD create API not adding approver

Here is the JSON I am using:

{   "serviceDeskId":"7",
   "requestTypeId":"127",
   "requestFieldValues":{      "customfield_15846":{         "value":"CDN Services",
         "child":{            "value":"New Configuration"
         }
      },
      "customfield_15607":{         "value":"High"
      },
      "customfield_15910":"172.30.136.46",
      "customfield_15909":"",
      "customfield_15894":1,
      "customfield_15895":997,
      "customfield_15896":"Sysadmin",
      "customfield_15869":"BOT",
      "customfield_15795":[         {            "name":"5badbe291fa6b77b16764f29"
         }
      ],
      "summary":"Ticket with attachment",
      "description":"Ticket with attachment"
   },
   "raiseOnBehalfOf":"5cb5692f1e9af40e540c0f55"
}

 

The approver is not set even when I am sending it - customfield_15795
Can you let me know if I am doing something wrong?

Hello Ankit,

Thank you for reaching out to Community!

I tested the same REST API I posted on this other thread just to make sure it was still valid and it worked. 

I see that you are not using the same order, so I'm not sure if it will work. 

Can you please use the same template I posted and just change the IDs?

I see that you have other custom fields, but use that simple one just to check if the approver will be added.

curl --request POST \
--url 'https://xxxxxxx.atlassian.net/rest/servicedeskapi/request' \
--user 'email@domain.com:APITOKEN' \
--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" }]
}
}
}'

Regards,
Angélica

@Angélica LuzMy guess is that you are not a programmer? In a JSON, the sequence of key-value pairs (the ones inside the curly brackets {}) doesn't matter. In fact, it doesn't matter in any programming language.

 

If you use a programming language to call this API, the JSON that is created will have the key-value pairs in any order. Only in an array (the ones with square brackets) can you control the ordering.

 

Anyhow, just in case I might be missing something, I did try what you said and used this:

curl --request POST \
--url 'https://mycompany.jira.com/rest/servicedeskapi/request' \
--user 'email_id:token' \
--header 'Accept: application/json' \
--header 'Content-Type: application/json' \
--data '{
"serviceDeskId": "7",
"requestTypeId": "127",
"requestFieldValues": {
"summary": "Request JSD help via REST",
"description": "I need a new *mouse* for my Mac",
"customfield_15795": [{ "name":"5badbe291fa6b77b16764f29" }]
}
}
}'

Still, the approvers were not added. Can it be due to something in the workflow? Any suggestions where I can investigate are welcome
