unable to create a service request using API v1

We are having difficulty creating a service request from the catalog using the REST api.

reviewing the documentation:

it needs a  "item_id":"123"

However there are no details on how to obtain this item_id.

We tried performing a "GET" against an existing ticket and

there were 2 id's "id" and "service_request_id" under

requested items and we also tryed the item_display_id

from the catalog item itself.

here is some of the output:

    "requested_item":  {
                           "id":  25000816737,
                           "service_request_id":  25010108683,
                           "quantity":  1,
                           "created_at":  "2020-02-25T14:58:01-05:00",
                           "updated_at":  "2020-02-25T14:58:01-05:00",
                           "remarks":  null,
                           "from_date":  null,
                           "to_date":  null,
                           "location_id":  null,
                           "item_type":  1,
                           "requested_item_values":  {
                                                         "Date Required (minimum 2 weeks from request date)":  "2020-02-28T00:00:00+00:00",


                           "stage_name":  "Requested",
                           "catalog_item":  "my request",
                           "item_display_id":  79

we then tried to send a "POST" with the values but it fails.




 "item_id":"25000816737", <-- this is the ID we are not sure how to obtain
   "field":"value" <-- this is where we put our "answers"


{ "status": false, "error_code": 400, "errors": "Requested Item detail is not present" }

i see 2 previous discussions with no response:
