JIRA 5.0 REST API Documentation

This is the reference document for the REST API and resources provided by JIRA. The REST APIs are developers who want to integrate JIRA with other standalone or web applications, and administrators who want to script interactions with the JIRA server.

If you are after an introductory, high-level view of the JIRA REST API, rather than an exhaustive reference document, then the best place to start is the JIRA REST API home.


You can also try out the JIRA REST API using the REST API Browser (aka, RAB) either by accessing the RAB on our public instance of JIRA, or installing the Atlassian SDK or Developer Toolbox plugin.

Getting started

Because the REST API is based on open standards, you can use any web development language to access the API. If you are using Java, however, the easiest way to get started using the JIRA REST API is to download with the JIRA REST Java Client (JRJC) and use it as a library within your own application. For other languages, refer to the JIRA REST API home for code examples.

Structure of the REST URIs

JIRA's REST APIs provide access to resources (data entities) via URI paths. To use a REST API, your application will make an HTTP request and parse the response. The JIRA REST API uses JSON as its communication format, and the standard HTTP methods like GET, PUT, POST and DELETE (see API descriptions below for which methods are available for each resource). URIs for JIRA's REST API resource have the following structure:

http://host:port/context/rest/api-name/api-version/resource-name

Currently there are two API names available, which will be discussed further below:

The current API version is 2. However, there is also a symbolic version, called latest, which resolves to the latest version supported by the given JIRA instance. As an example, if you wanted to retrieve the JSON representation of issue JRA-9 from Atlassian's public issue tracker, you would access:

https://jira.atlassian.com/rest/api/latest/issue/JRA-9

There is a WADL document that contains the documentation for each resource in the JIRA REST API. It is available here.

Expansion in the REST APIs

In order to minimise network traffic and server CPU usage, the JIRA REST API sometimes uses a technique called expansion. When a REST resource uses expansion then parts of that resource will not be included in the JSON response unless explicitly requested. The way to request those fragments to be included is by using the expand query parameter.

You can use the expand query parameter to specify a comma-separated list of entities that you want expanded, identifying each of them by name. For example, appending ?expand=names,renderedFields to an issue's URI requests the inclusion of the translated field names and the HTML-rendered field values in the response. Continuing with our example above, we would use the following URL to get that information for JRA-9:

https://jira.atlassian.com/rest/api/latest/issue/JRA-9?expand=names,renderedFields

To discover the identifiers for each entity, look at the expand property in the parent object. In the JSON example below, the resource declares widgets as being expandable.

{"expand":"widgets", "self":"http://www.example.com/jira/rest/api/resource/KEY-1", "widgets":{"widgets":[],"size":5}}

You can use the dot notation to specify expansion of entities within another entity. For example ?expand=widgets.fringels would expand the widgets collection and also the fringel property on each widget.

Authentication

Any authentication that works against JIRA will work against the REST API. The prefered authentication methods are HTTP Basic (when using SSL) and OAuth, which are both documented in the JIRA REST API Tutorials. Other supported methods include: HTTP Cookies, Trusted Applications, and os_username/os_password query parameters.

The log-in page uses cookie-based authentication, so if you are using JIRA in a browser you can call REST from Javascript on the page and rely on the authentication that the browser has established. Callers wanting to reproduce the behaviour of the JIRA log-in page (for example, to display authentication error messages to users) or who are calling both the REST and SOAP API can POST to the /auth/1/session resource as per the documentation below.

You can find OAuth code samples in several programming languages at bitbucket.org/rmanalan/atlassian-oauth-examples.

string

combined with the projectKeys param, lists the projects with which to filter the results. If absent, all projects are returned. This parameter can be specified multiple times, and/or be a comma-separated list. Specifiying a project that does not exist (or that you cannot create issues in) is not an error, but it will not be in the results.

projectKeys

string

combined with the projectIds param, lists the projects with which to filter the results. If null, all projects are returned. This parameter can be specified multiple times, and/or be a comma-separated list. Specifiying a project that does not exist (or that you cannot create issues in) is not an error, but it will not be in the results.

issuetypeIds

/rest/api/2/issue/{issueIdOrKey}

resource-wide template parameters
parameter value description

issueIdOrKey

string

the issue id or key to update (i.e. JRA-1330)

Methods

GET

/rest/api/2/issue/{issueIdOrKey}?fields&expand

Returns a full representation of the issue for the given issue key.

An issue JSON consists of the issue key, a collection of fields, a link to the workflow transition sub-resource, and (optionally) the HTML rendered values of any fields that support it (e.g. if wiki syntax is enabled for the description or comments).

The fields param (which can be specified multiple times) gives a comma-separated list of fields to include in the response. This can be used to retrieve a subset of fields. A particular field can be excluded by prefixing it with a minus.

By default, all (*all) fields are returned in this get-issue resource. Note: the default is different when doing a jql search -- the default there is just navigable fields (*navigable).

  • *all - include all fields
  • *navigable - include just navigable fields
  • summary,comment - include just the summary and comments
  • -comment - include everything except comments (the default is *all for get-issue)
  • *all,-comment - include everything except comments

JIRA will attempt to identify the issue by the issueIdOrKey path parameter. This can be an issue id, or an issue key. If the issue cannot be found via an exact match, JIRA will also look for the issue in a case-insensitive way, or by looking to see if the issue was moved. In either of these cases, the request will proceed as normal (a 302 or other redirect will not be returned). The issue key contained in the response will indicate the current value of issue's key.

request query parameters
parameter value description

fields

string

the list of fields to return for the issue. By default, all fields are returned.

/rest/api/2/issue/{issueIdOrKey}/attachments

Issue attachments

resource-wide template parameters
parameter value description

issueIdOrKey

string

the issue that you want to add the attachments to

Methods

POST

Add one or more attachments to an issue.

This resource expects a multipart post. The media-type multipart/form-data is defined in RFC 1867. Most client libraries have classes that make dealing with multipart posts simple. For instance, in Java the Apache HTTP Components library provides a MultiPartEntity that makes it simple to submit a multipart POST.

In order to protect against XSRF attacks, because this method accepts multipart/form-data, it has XSRF protection on it. This means you must submit a header of X-Atlassian-Token: nocheck with the request, otherwise it will be blocked.

The name of the multipart/form-data parameter that contains attachments must be "file"

A simple example to upload a file called "myfile.txt" to issue REST-123:

curl -D- -u admin:admin -X POST -H "X-Atlassian-Token: nocheck" -F "file=@myfile.txt" http://myhost/rest/api/2/issue/TEST-123/attachments

/rest/api/2/mypermissions

Provide permission information for the current user.

Methods

GET

/rest/api/2/mypermissions?projectKey&projectId&issueKey&issueId

Returns all permissions in the system and whether the currently logged in user has them. You can optionally provide a specific context to get permissions for (projectKey OR projectId OR issueKey OR issueId)

  • When no context supplied the project related permissions will return true if the user has that permission in ANY project
  • If a project context is provided, project related permissions will return true if the user has the permissions in the specified project. For permissions that are determined using issue data (e.g Current Assignee), true will be returned if the user meets the permission criteria in ANY issue in that project
  • If an issue context is provided, it will return whether or not the user has each permission in that specific issue

NB: The above means that for issue-level permissions (EDIT_ISSUE for example), hasPermission may be true when no context is provided, or when a project context is provided, but may be false for any given (or all) issues. This would occur (for example) if Reporters were given the EDIT_ISSUE permission. This is because any user could be a reporter, except in the context of a concrete issue, where the reporter is known.

Global permissions will still be returned for all scopes.

/rest/auth/1/session

Implement a REST resource for acquiring a session cookie.

Methods

POST

Creates a new session for a user in JIRA. Once a session has been successfully created it can be used to access any of JIRA's remote APIs and also the web UI by passing the appropriate HTTP Cookie header.

Note that it is generally preferrable to use HTTP BASIC authentication with the REST API. However, this resource may be used to mimic the behaviour of JIRA's log-in page (e.g. to display log-in errors to a user).

acceptable request representations:

  • application/json (credentials) [expand]

    Example
    {"username":"fred","password":"freds_password"}

available response representations:

  • 200 [expand]

    Example
    {"session":{"name":"JSESSIONID","value":"12345678901234567890"},"loginInfo":{"failedLoginCount":10,"loginCount":127,"lastFailedLoginTime":"2012-02-15T17:34:35.731-0600","previousLoginTime":"2012-02-15T17:34:35.731-0600"}}

    Returns information about the caller's session if the caller is authenticated.

    Note that the response contains the Set-Cookie HTTP headers that must be honoured by the caller. If you are using a cookie-aware HTTP client then it will handle all Set-Cookie headers automatically. This is important because setting the JSESSIONID cookie alone may not be sufficient for the authentication to work.
  • 401 [expand]

    Returned if the login fails due to invalid credentials.

  • 403 [expand]

    Returned if the login is denied due to a CAPTCHA requirement, throtting, or any other reason. In case of a 403 status code it is possible that the supplied credentials are valid but the user is not allowed to log in at this point in time.

GET

Returns information about the currently authenticated user's session. If the caller is not authenticated they will get a 401 Unauthorized status code.

available response representations:

  • 200 [expand]

    Example
    {"self":"http://www.example.com/jira/rest/api/2.0/user/fred","name":"fred","loginInfo":{"failedLoginCount":10,"loginCount":127,"lastFailedLoginTime":"2012-02-15T17:34:35.731-0600","previousLoginTime":"2012-02-15T17:34:35.731-0600"}}
