Using the developer documentation

The Atlassian developer documentation is here to help you build apps with our products. This page shows you where to find information on our product APIs, development frameworks, UI modules, and other resources.

Select a product from the Documentation dropdown at the top of the screen to learn more about developing with that product and deployment option.

When selecting a product, make sure you choose the right deployment option, either cloud or server (Data Center). To double-check that you are looking at the right docs, check for Cloud or Server in the product name or page URL.

  3. Resources is a collection of links to the status page, developer community, platform roadmap, and other resources for developers.
