How to get Jira ID link from Pull Request via Curl call to the API

Am trying to retrieve the JIRA ID referenced on the Stash Pull Request UI display (JIRA Issue). This Curl call: curl -k -D- -u <JiraUser> -X GET -H \'Content-Type: application/json\' \'https://localhost:8443/rest/api/1.0/projects/<project>/repos/<repository>/pull-requests/4379/activities?limit=1000' can return "attributes:{"jira-key": but does not appear to actually return the JIRA Issue linked to on the Pull Request page.

Hi @Danny Powell,

I believe what you are looking for is the bitbucket-JIRA REST API. (The docs I've linked are Stash docs, as the Bitbucket Server docs are currently broken. I'm working on fixing that right now!) 

Basically you can call:


and will receive a response similar to:

        "key": "JRA-11",
        "url": ""
        "key": "JRA-9",
        "url": ""


I hope that helps,

Is there any Java Method to get all the JIRA issues associated with the PR? Pls help.

@Senthil Jothi, 

there sure is: 

com.atlassian.bitbucket.integration.jira.JiraIssueService exposes the method getIssuesForPullRequest(int, long).

You will also need to add the following dependency to your pom.xml:


Thank you soo much. smile

Last question,

Is there any method to add more issues to the same list ? 

Hi @Felix Haehnel

I am still using stash 3.11.4. Will this dependency work ? 

Is there a way to increase the default # of commits that it will check? Looks like it's limited to 100, but I need to get to about 400 commits. the "?limit=1000" doesn't work anymore

This does not appear to work in JIRA Server 7.2.1 with Bitbucket Server 4.9.1. I can't see to find anyway to link either Issues to Pull-requests or vice versa.

That did it! Thank you for the help. That was exactly what I needed.
