REST API call with Script Runner in Script Listener

Edited

Hi,

I'm trying to post a simple REST API call (hard-coded issue creation) to a test instance via Script Runner. The call should actually happen in a Script Listener but for debugging I'm using the Script Console. Unfortunately I'm stuck with a HTTP 400 response althought the call is successful using Postman.

import groovy.json.StreamingJsonBuilder
import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField
import java.text.SimpleDateFormat
import java.text.DateFormat
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.comments.CommentManager

def baseURL = "http://test2.mydomain:8080/rest/api/2/issue/"; 

def body_req = [
"""
{ "fields":
 {
  "project": {"key": "ABC"},
  "issuetype": {"name": "Bug"},
  "summary": "My Issue.",
  "description": "Test"
 }
}
"""
]

URL url = new URL(baseURL);
HttpURLConnection connection=(HttpURLConnection)url.openConnection();
connection.setRequestProperty( "Authorization", "Basic T****************************************************************4" );
connection.requestMethod = "POST";
connection.doOutput = true;
connection.setRequestProperty("Content-Type", "application/json;charset=UTF-8");
connection.outputStream.withWriter("UTF-8") { new StreamingJsonBuilder(it, body_req) }
connection.connect();

println("url: " + url);
println("Content:" + connection.getContent())
println("ResponseCode:" + connection.getResponseCode())
println("getResponseMessage:" + connection.getResponseMessage())

Outcome:

java.io.IOException: Server returned HTTP response code: 400 for URL: http://test2.mydomain:8080/rest/api/2/issue/
 at java_net_URLConnection$getContent.call(Unknown Source)
 at Script337.run(Script337.groovy:36)

 

In Postman it works:

Thanks for your help!
Cheers, Tom

I found a solution

def baseurl = ComponentAccessor.getApplicationProperties().getString("jira.baseurl")
def authString = "llll:pppp".bytes.encodeBase64().toString()
def remote = new HTTPBuilder(baseurl+"/rest/configuration-manager/api/1.3/snapshots")
def issueJson = remote.request(Method.POST, ContentType.JSON) { req ->
headers."Authorization" = "Basic ${authString}"
body = [ name :" My Project Snapshot",
description : "project snapshot",
scope : "projectWithIssues",
projectKey : ["XXXX"],
filters : [],
agileBoards : [],
dashboards : []
]
response.success = { resp, json ->
log.warn("Successful = " + json.messages)
}
response.failure = { resp, json ->
log.warn("Failed = " + json.messages)
}
}

Thanks! It works for me. I've only refactored it for posting pages into Confluence through REST API.

Hello @Tom104Tom ,

 

You might want to try this approach

import groovyx.net.http.HTTPBuilder
import static groovyx.net.http.ContentType.*
import groovyx.net.http.ContentType
import static groovyx.net.http.Method.*

def http = new HTTPBuilder('http://localhost:2990/jira/rest/api/2/issue')
def authString = "admin:admin".getBytes().encodeBase64().toString();
http.request(POST, ContentType.JSON) {
requestContentType = ContentType.JSON
request.addHeader("authorization: Basic ${authString}", "ContentType: application/json")
body = [ fields:
"{\"project\": {\"key\": \"MIS\"},\"issuetype\": {\"name\": \"Task\"}, \"summary\": \"My new task hello world\",\"description\": \"Test\"}"
]
response.success = { resp, JSON ->
log.warn("Successful = " + JSON)
}

response.failure = { resp, JSON ->
log.warn("Failed = " + JSON)
}
}

This worked for me. Try it out and tell me how it goes.

 

Cheers,

Ian

@Ian 

I am getting errors as requestContentType is undeclared if I am trying with above code

Hello @Vineela Durbha,

 

Can you show the exact code you used and the error you got? Thanks.

Hello i'm trying to use this webservice in scriptrunner : "http://localhost:8081/rest/configuration-manager/api/1.3/snapshots"

it works fine with my rest api browser with this body 

{
"name" : "My Project Snapshot with 13",
"description" : "Interesting snapshot",
"scope" : "projectWithIssues",
"projectKey" : ["EBDODI"],
"filters" : [ ],
"agileBoards" : [ ],
"dashboards" : [ ],
"options" : {
"checkCustomFieldValues" : true,
"includeAttachmentFiles" : true
}
}

but in script runner i get this

 this is my code :

def http = new HTTPBuilder('http://localhost:8081/rest/configuration-manager/api/1.3/snapshots') 
def authString = "admin:admin".getBytes().encodeBase64().toString();
http.request(POST, ContentType.JSON) {
requestContentType = ContentType.JSON
request.addHeader("authorization: Basic ${authString}", "ContentType: application/json")
body = [

]
response.success = { resp, JSON ->
log.warn("Successful = " + JSON)
}

response.failure = { resp, JSON ->
log.warn("Failed = " + JSON)
}
}

@Admin Jira I get the same result. I am calling Jira REST endpoint from Scriptrunner REST endpoint.

I do not use basic auth. My environment requires a bearer token, but sending the bearer token in the header still returns the same error.

Did you ever get past this issue?

In my case, I will have to use a Java API instead, unless someone found a solution after May 2022 that allows the REST API to be called directly.
