PATCH https://sampleHostName/issues/{id}

Modifies the provided properties of the specified issue to match the values provided in the request.

Setting a property value to null in the request will set the corresponding property value to null on the issue. However, omitting a property from the request body entirely will leave that property's current value on the issue unchanged. Also, setting an object (other than "properties") to null will have the same effect as setting each individual property in that object to null.


To use this endpoint, the user is required to have different ProjectWise Forms permissions (for the project, or for the issue's associated form definition if form definition security is specified) based on the changes being made:

  • Change to the status property: Approve (Forms_ApproveAccess) permission
  • Change to the assignee or assignees property: Assign (Forms_AssignAccess) or Approve permission
  • Changes to other properties: Create/Modify (Forms_CreateAccess) permission

Full Access (Forms_FullAccess) will satisfy all of these requirements.
