I'm trying to find a way to make JSON POST's for the Rest API, so I can create JIRA issues. After going to my url, following the tutorials I have found online, I'm having 404 errors. Below, the URL you see, does produce information. If I add "/issue" to the end, I get 404. In the URL below, "issue," isn't even there. There is issue type, but that won't help me create an issue. See my attached photo to see what I mean. Is there an access problem I'm having, restricting me from seeing the "issue" piece?apiproblem.PNG

Hi @Chris ,

In order for you to create the issue you must send the request via a POST http verb.

You can use curl or even Postman tool in order to do this.

Accessing it via the browser will only request the GET http verb.

@brbojorque appreciate the info. I'm new to using cURL. I was using postman yesterday and getting the 404 error attempting to POST the "issue." Can you have a look at my code and let me know your thoughts?

curl \
-u username:password \
-X POST \
-D apiTest.json \
-H "Content-Type: application/json" \
