Description

Hi there,

assigning a different user using the JSON REST API works perfectly on 4.1.1.stable when we assign to a specific user ID.

However, when trying to unassign a user, the request is simply ignored. I tried putting null, 0, -1 or "" as the user ID, but nothing works; I believe this to be a defect.

Best,
Johannes

I was able to unassign the Assignee with the following REST-API command, referring to Rest_Issues.

curl -X PUT -H "Content-Type: application/json" -H "X-Redmine-API-Key: <API KEY>" -d '{"issue": {"assigned_to_id": ""}}' http://127.0.0.1:3000/issues/1.json

If you can't update with the above command, it is possible that Edit issues permission is disabled for the user running the command.
