Rest API insert fields in request type

Anyone knows if it’s possible to add/update fields in the request type using Rest API? Is there API for that at all? For instance to update assignee field/value?

Hi @NinoKezherashvili ,

Welcome to the community.

As far as I understand, you want to edit an issue using the Rest API. For that, you can use the following Edit Issue API to use in your case. Example,

curl --request PUT \
  --url '{issueIdOrKey}' \
  --user '<api_token>' \
  --header 'Accept: application/json' \
  --header 'Content-Type: application/json' \
  --data '{
        "fields": {
            "assignee": {
                "name": "new_assignee_username"

Hope this helps.

Hello! Not for the issue but for the request types in Jira Service Management project. So for instance if I have request type called “Report bug” with the fields like: summary, description, assignee… I want to add other fields in the Report bug request type using API (for instance add approvers field). Is that possible?
