"code":2001,"errors":["Title cannot be empty."]

We are trying to create an incident in PagerDuty API but getting an error ““code”:2001,“errors”:[“Title cannot be empty.”]”

This is our code:

headers = {'Authorization': 'Token token=xxxxxxxxxxxxx, 'Content-type': 'application/json'}
pg_esc_id = "PCURTLY"
pg_svc_id = "PMRO49S"

# Create PD Incident
url = 'https://api.pagerduty.com/incidents'
payload = {
    "incident": {
        "type": "incident",
        "title": "Testing PG incident creation",
        "service": {
            "id": pg_svc_id,
            "summary": "ioc_dev",
            "type": "service_reference",
            "self": "https://api.pagerduty.com/services/" + pg_svc_id,
        "priority": {
            "id": "PZPTATR",
            "summary": "P4",
            "type": "priority"
        "urgency": "high",
        "body": {
            "type": "incident_body",
            "details": "string"
        "incident_key": "string",
        "escalation_policy": {
            "id": pg_esc_id,
            "type": "escalation_policy_reference",
            "self": "https://api.pagerduty.com/escalation_policies/" + pg_esc_id,

data = requests.post(url, data=payload, headers=headers)

Can some one pls help me here

I might suggest you test it via the PagerDuty API Reference and get it working here: https://developer.pagerduty.com/api-reference/reference/REST/openapiv3.json/paths/~1incidents/post

You also have a missing From: header in your example.
