Use Unirest in Scriptrunner for Server

Phil P Jan 03, 2018

Hi,

I've been doing some integration with JIRA and ServiceNow and was using an JIRA cloud dev environment for my initial testing where everything was working great.

I have now transitioned to a local server version of JIRA and it seems like the Unirest.post function is not defined by default in this version. I was wondering if there is an import I can make to get it to work or if I need to use a different method.

def statusresponse = Unirest.post("https://xxxxx.service-now.com/api/now/table/change_request")
.basicAuth("xxxx", "xxxxx")
.header("Accept","application/json")
.header("Content-Type","application/json")
.body("{\"u_subcategory\":\""+iss+"\",\"category\":\"Jira Integration\",\"short_description\":\""+desc+"\",\"correlation_id\":\""+key+"\",\"correlation_display\":\"Jira Integration\"}")
.asJson();

 

This is the code that was working on the cloud version but now gives an error in the server version.

Hello,

Kindly have a look at this link (there is an example of how you can do it)

https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Answers-Developer-Questions/Making-a-REST-call-using-script-runner/qaq-p/576712

Using that method and I'm able to send the POST request. But with Unirest after running the Unirest.post function it returns the body of the response :

POST https://devxxxx.service-now.com/api/now/table/change_request asJson Request Duration: 4422ms
status: 201 - Created
body: {"result":{"parent":"","made_sla":"true","caused_by":"",....}}

 I seem to be unable to retrieve the response body using HttpURLConnection

I think connection.getResponseMessage() should get the response.

Phil P Jan 04, 2018 • edited

connection.getResponseMessage() was returning sun.net.www.protocol.http.HttpURLConnection$HttpInputStream@69c728b9

 

I had to buffer the input stream to read it properly:

def inputStream = connection.getInputStream();

BufferedReader input = new BufferedReader(
new InputStreamReader(
inputStream));

StringBuilder response = new StringBuilder();
String currentLine;

while ((currentLine = input.readLine()) != null)
response.append(currentLine);

input.close();
response.toString();

 This gave me the same output as using Unirest.

 

Thanks for the help!
