I tried a lot of different options to update a Jira (Server) issue but it still isn't working. Can someone post an example?

Current url I am using: https://MYURL/rest/api/2/issue/MYISSUEKEY

I am looking for the right values for:

Payload type: Json? Raw? 

Data? what to put where in which format

Wrap request?

Headers? I now use Content-Type application/json

The call now if being authenticated but complains about “fields” or “update” required, but I am sending it with the request. Maybe I have to put I somewhere else…?

Hi @MarcKraak 

Jira API has examples: https://developer.atlassian.com/server/jira/platform/jira-rest-api-examples/

 

Postman is also a good tool to use to test: https://www.postman.com/

Thanks @jayeshkumarbhatia . However, my example works in Postman, not in Zapier, see screenshot

Hi @MarcKraak , Can you try be making following changes?

 

  1. Use Webhook by Zapier action → Custom Request
  2. Copy and paste all the details like endpoint url, headers, method,etc in the new action. Also add the data, in Data section of new action. 

Try and let me know if this works.
