JIRA REST API - Edit Issues

  • When you want to update a field with JIRA REST API, first write it i json format.  Ex: I want to update the summary of an issue.        
  • {"fields": {"summary":{"name":"bahar"}}}
  •  You can try it with curl commant whether it works or not.
  •   curl -D- -X PUT -H "Authorization: Basic YWRtaW46SDF0MXQ=" --data "{\"fields\":{\"summary\":\"bahar\"}}"   -H "Content-Type: application/json" "http://localhost:8080/rest/api/2/issue/TAI-9"
  •  You should use PUT for updating.
  • Don't forget to add "\" backslash  before the double quotes.
  • You should encode your username:password with base 64 encode.
  • encoder 
  • write your username:password, and the output will be "YWRtaW46SDF0MXQ= " something like this. Write the output to the authorization. 
  • Ex: "Authorization: Basic YWRtaW46SDF0MXQ="  
  • "http://localhost:8080/rest/api/2/issue/TAI-9" is the issue that you want to update.
  •   You can do the same thing with java code.Here is the method:   
     public static String updateSummary() throws IOException {
        URL url = new URL("http://localhost:8080/rest/api/2/issue/TAI-9");
        HttpURLConnection conn = (HttpURLConnection) url.openConnection();

        String credentials = "username" + ":" + "password";
        String encoding = Base64Converter.encode(credentials.getBytes("UTF-8"));
        conn.setRequestProperty("Authorization", String.format("Basic %s", encoding));
        conn.setRequestProperty("Content-Type", "application/json");
        String st="{\"fields\":{\"summary\":\"bahar\"}}"

        byte[] outputBytes = st.getBytes("UTF-8");
        OutputStream os = conn.getOutputStream();
        BufferedReader rd = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(conn.getInputStream()));
        StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder();
        String line;
        while ((line = rd.readLine()) != null) {

        return sb.toString();


  • you can use Base64Convertor.java class. Download
