how to make REST API calls from a JIRA plugin?


I am new to JIRA plugin development. I am developing a plugin in which on clicking a web-item, it has to make a rest api call. How do I achieve this? 

I know a little about webwork action. Is that the way to go? Should the api call be made inside a webwork action?

Please refer to any relevant tutorial. I couldn't find any so far in last 2 days.

You can make rest calls in your addon page by using javascript OR you can look for something in java itself.

Try this

You can import apache httpClient in your pom.xml
