Data pipeline / Reference / REST API


Postman Collection

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:


Using the REST API

The REST API is common to Jira, Bitbucket, and Confluence.


To use the data pipeline, you’ll need:

  • A Data Center license
  • System admin global permissions for the application

Special headers

X-Atlassian-Token: no-check request header must be specified for methods that are protected from Cross Site Request Forgery (XSRF/CSRF) attacks. Required for Confluence and Bitbucket.

Context path

If your application is configured to use a context path, such as /jira or /confluence remember to include this in the request URL. 

Example request

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 https://your-domain.atlassian.net for the URL. The URL to use for Data Center is https://myexamplesite.com/rest/datapipeline/latest/ where myexamplesite is your domain.
