The data pipeline provides an easy way to export data from your Data Center application (Jira, Confluence, or Bitbucket), and feed it into your existing data platform (like Tableau or PowerBI). Exports can be scheduled through the UI, or via REST.
There are some performance and security considerations to be aware of, so to learn more about the data pipeline, see:
While you can use basic authentication (username and password), we strongly recommend using personal access tokens for authentication.
See Using personal access tokens for more details.
The REST API is common to Jira, Bitbucket, and Confluence.
To use the data pipeline, you’ll need:
request header must be specified for methods that are protected from Cross Site Request Forgery (XSRF/CSRF) attacks. Required for Confluence and Bitbucket.
If your application is configured to use a context path, such as or remember to include this in the request URL.
Here is an example request, using cURL and a personal access token for authentication:
curl -H "Authorization:Bearer ABCD1234" -H "X-Atlassian-Token: no-check" -X POST https://myexamplesite.com/rest/datapipeline/latest/export?fromDate=2020-10-22T01:30:11Z
Note: the examples in the API reference use for the URL. The URL to use for Data Center is where is your domain.
