API import issue when the field is empty

I am using the JIRA API to pull ticket details and put it in a separate database that I can connect Tableau to.

My problem is that when pulling in a ticket details (using python) where e.g. it has no priority, that I get an error.

How do I get around that error? How can I handle this error?


Just currently testing by printing the details on-screen:


for issue in issues:
if verbose:
            print( "issue.key: ", issue.key );
            print( "issue.fields.project.id: ", issue.fields.project.id );

The error I get is: 

cursor.execute(sql_stmt, (issue.key, issue.fields.issuetype.name, issue.fields.project.name, issue.fields.summary, issue.fields.updated,issue.fields.priority.name))
AttributeError: type object 'PropertyHolder' has no attribute 'priority

The following worked for me:

if verbose:
print( "issue.key: ", issue.key );
print( "issue.fields.project.id: ", issue.fields.project.id );
except AttributeError:
 key = None
