How to set the requet type in the created jira issue

I am using "/rest/api/2/issue" to create issue that is successfully getting created but i am unable to set the request type to a valid value, so that the ticket can be shared by the team with the Customer.

I tried lot of options provided on the net but it could not resolve the issue.


Hi @Ahsan Kamal ,

We may need more information on the 'request type' that you are referring to. Are you referring to the issue type?

Here is a link that may help for issue creation :

If you are referring issuetype : then 

"issuetype": { "name": "Bug"}


"issuetype": { "id": "10009"}

Hi @Ahsan Kamal

were you following this article?

If so, I seem to understand it gave you back an error or did it simply not work out?

In case you could explain a bit further what you have already and where you stuck some experience Community members might be able to catch up on the current state and advise further.
