Hi @Yasashree ,

Are you able to set the due date field via JIRA UI ? To set Due date on an issue, you need "schedule Issue" permission on the project. You may need to check for the permission.

@Yasashree - Try to pass the value like this

"duedate": "2021-06-09"

If it does not work, kindly share the complete restapi POST call

Hey @Niranjan

I am trying to set the due date for my subtask when it is created through the rest api. I am using the above format in my payload but still get a 400 error. Any advice?

Thanks,

Derek
