Cannot update "parent" field when using REST API

I’m trying to update a story’s parent through the API and it doesn’t work. I’m able to create a story with its parent but unable to update it.

Any help will be really appreciated.

We can’t use the Team field via API either. We’re actually planning on dumping the product entirely.

We are unhappy with:

  • The poor visibility into WHY/HOW portfolio schedules things
  • The inability to access these fields via normal API
  • Poor searching experience in normal Jira
  • The departure from normal issue linking for Parent field
  • Team field on CREATE screen BREAKS the jiraissue if the creator doesn’t have EDIT permission

Unfortunately, I used to sell the tool and now as internal IT I simply cannot recommend it any further. We haven’t bothered to update to latest in a long time, but effectively all interest in the product is gone here.

I have the same issue.

This looks to be working now:
