REST API to get JIRA issue created from Bitbucket pull-request comment?

What I need to do is retrieve the JIRA issue created via the "Create issue" option in a pull request's comment  


This seems to be related to Bitbucket / JIRA integration.

I saw an almost similar post but it wasn't quite the same:  (it is retrieving the issues for which commits were made).  It seems to use this API.

I would expect to need to pass the comment ID to an API and get it somehow but can't find the option.  An option to create the issue is here with a POST.  I expected a related GET.

Thank you.  Hopefully you can point me to what I missed.

Hi @Barry Robertson 

You should be able to request the Pull Request comment using the "/comments" resource by using the comment ID .e.g:


The response will contain the "properties" map with the "issues" key, e.g.:

"properties": {
"repositoryId": 1234,
"issues": ["JIRAKEY-123"]
// The rest of the response

The "issues" field might be undefined if there are no Jira issues created for the comment:

"properties": {
"repositoryId": 1234,

// The rest of the response

Link to docs for "comments" resource:

Please be aware that the documentation page doesn't reference the "issues" field.

@Maciej Adamczak , would you happen to know the corresponding answer for Crucible?  I have the Bitbucket one working per your suggestion but now need to address Crucible reviews.  I saw this issue but a suggested workaround there wasn't quite the answer I need.   Thanks again for the pointer on Bitbucket..

Sorry, but I don't know how that works in Crucible.
