Create new key while create project by API

HI All,

          How will get all project keys. Because while we create new project by API  i need to give different key. So before that i need to check all existing Key and create new Key. How will achieve this?

Since you have a collection on project keys for each project you have to do a loop over all projects. Here is a code example how to get all project keys:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.project.Project
import com.atlassian.jira.project.ProjectManager

ProjectManager projectManager = ComponentAccessor.getProjectManager();

List<String> prjKeys = new ArrayList<>();

for(Project project: projectManager.getProjectObjects()){

return prjKeys.toString()

can you please share your code.. I'm also working on something related to this
