Access Jira Rest api from Confluence

Hi,

I am trying to make a Confluence addon that will access Jira Rest api. I am a complete newbie in this and I have been having trouble to find a place to start.

Thanks for your help.

you can try with jersy libraries as follows

package com.rest.client;
 
import com.sun.jersey.api.client.Client;
import com.sun.jersey.api.client.ClientResponse;
import com.sun.jersey.api.client.WebResource;
import com.sun.jersey.api.client.filter.HTTPBasicAuthFilter;
 
public class RESTclient {
 
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        try {
 
            Client client = Client.create();           
            client.addFilter(new HTTPBasicAuthFilter("username", "password"));
            WebResource webResource = client.resource("http://localhost:9090/rest/api/2/issue/JIRA-430");          
                String input="{\"fields\": {\"customfield_10156\": \"Testing through REST\"} }";       
            ClientResponse response = webResource.type("application/json").put(ClientResponse.class, input);   
            String output = response.getEntity(String.class);          
            System.out.println(output);
        } catch (Exception e) {
            e.printStackTrace();
 
        }
 
    }
}

add the following dependencies in pom.xml

<dependency>
			<groupId>javax.servlet</groupId>
			<artifactId>servlet-api</artifactId>
			<version>2.3</version>
			<scope>provided</scope>
		</dependency>
		<dependency>
			<groupId>com.sun.jersey</groupId>
			<artifactId>jersey-client</artifactId>
			<version>${jersey.client.version}</version>
			<scope>provided</scope>
		</dependency>
		<dependency>
			<groupId>com.sun.jersey.contribs</groupId>
			<artifactId>jersey-multipart</artifactId>
			<version>${jersey.client.version}</version>
			<scope>provided</scope>
		</dependency>
		<dependency>
			<groupId>com.sun.jersey.contribs</groupId>
			<artifactId>jersey-apache-client</artifactId>
			<version>${jersey.client.version}</version>
			<scope>provided</scope>
		</dependency>
		<dependency>
			<groupId>com.sun.jersey</groupId>
			<artifactId>jersey-json</artifactId>
			<version>${jersey.client.version}</version>
			<scope>provided</scope>
		</dependency>
		<dependency>
			<groupId>com.sun.jersey</groupId>
			<artifactId>jersey-bundle</artifactId>
			<version>1.8</version>
			<scope>provided</scope>
		</dependency>

For writing a Confluence add on, start at https://developer.atlassian.com/display/CONFDEV/Confluence+Developer+Documentation

For the basics of using Jira's REST interface, I'd recommend a look through the tutorials - see https://developer.atlassian.com/display/JIRADEV/JIRA+REST+APIs

The main problem I am having right now is accessing Jira Api from a confluence addon.

There's not a lot we can tell you - you haven't defined the problem beyond "I can't access it", and the best answer to that is in the documentation.

If there is a SSO (I guess it is it, or magic Crowd, whatever) and I access both, Confluence and Jira with the same credentials. How to access Jira REST api from Confluence plugin, so a user doesn't have to provide credentials to jira, but the one from the currently logged in user are used?
