Hi Harry - to get a decent answer, you'll need to share a bit more information here.

What are you expecting to happen and what is actually happening. Are you getting an error message? If so post the details. 

If you can share a snippet of the code you are using which shows how you are calling the API, it will help people understand what you are trying to do.

Finally, since your question is development related, consider asking it over on the dedicated developer's community: If you do that, post a link here so that others can follow the trail.

Below is the code :-

NewProject objnewprj = new NewProject();
objnewprj.key = "TEST"; = "TEST";
objnewprj.projectTypeKey = "business";
objnewprj.projectTemplateKey = "com.atlassian.jira-core-project-templates:jira-core-project-management";
objnewprj.description = "Example Project description";
objnewprj.lead = "admin";
objnewprj.url = "";
objnewprj.assigneeType = "UNASSIGNED";
objnewprj.avatarId = 10204;
objnewprj.issueSecurityScheme = 10000;
objnewprj.permissionScheme = 10100;
objnewprj.notificationScheme = 10100;
objnewprj.categoryId = "10000";
var projectitem = new JavaScriptSerializer().Serialize(objnewprj);
byte[] formbytes = System.Text.ASCIIEncoding.Default.GetBytes(projectitem.ToString());

var webrequest = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create("");
webrequest.Method = "POST";
webrequest.ContentType = "application/json";
webrequest.UserAgent = "xx";
var webresponse = webrequest.GetResponse();
System.IO.StreamReader reader = null;
System.IO.Stream responseStream = webresponse.GetResponseStream();
reader = new System.IO.StreamReader(responseStream);
result = reader.ReadToEnd();
catch(Exception ex)
return "error";
return result;


This implementation is working fine on Postman Software but when implementing through code giving "The remote server returned an error: (400) Bad Request." error.

One thing the url specified here is dummy and you have to provide some actual url here to run thid code.

Please review the code and give your valuable feedback.
