Important! API changes to improve user privacy

On 24 May 2018 we announced upcoming API changes to Jira Cloud REST APIs, webhooks, and extension points to support user privacy. Before continuing, please ensure you have read the change notice.

Recent changes

Updated SLA REST API

We are in the process of rolling out some changes to the SLA API (servicedeskapi/request/{issueIdOrKey}/sla). The friendly value inside of the remainingTime, goalDuration and elapsedTime objects will now use additional time units - days ("d"), weeks ("w") and years ("y").

Request create property panel

We have added support for defining your own request create property panels which are displayed on the request creation screen in the customer portal and enable apps to save arbitrary data during request creation as Jira issue properties.

Issue fields support

Single and multi select issue fields supplied by Connect apps are now supported in JSD customer portal.

Non-experimental APIs

We have removed the experimental flag from the following APIs:

  • /servicedeskapi/customer
  • /servicedeskapi/servicedesk/{serviceDeskId}/customer (POST only)
  • /servicedeskapi/request/{issueIdOrKey}/approval
  • /servicedeskapi/request/{issueIdOrKey}/approval/{approvalId}

Updated REST APIs

We updated all of our REST APIs to support next-gen projects except the following which will return appropriate not supported in next-gen error messages:

  • POST /servicedeskapi/servicedesk/{serviceDeskId}/requesttype
  • GET /servicedeskapi/request/{issueIdOrKey}/transition
  • POST /servicedeskapi/request/{issueIdOrKey}/transition
  • GET /servicedeskapi/request/{issueIdOrKey}/approval
  • GET /servicedeskapi/request/{issueIdOrKey}/approval/{approvalId}
  • POST /servicedeskapi/request/{issueIdOrKey}/approval/{approvalId}

We have made the following changes to the REST APIs:

  • Added the searchQuery parameter to /servicedeskapi/requesttype
  • Added the approvalStatus parameter and the requestOwnership=APPROVER value to /servicedeskapi/request
  • Added /servicedeskapi/request/{issueIdOrKey}/notification

For up-to-date and complete docs, see the JSD REST API documentation.
