Getting unexpected result from API call

Kristian Jackson Sep 13, 2017

When I make the API call :

https://XXX.XXX/rest/servicedeskapi/servicedesk/1/queue/38/issue?limit=50&start=50

I am returned a list of open issues. Then I issue the call:

https://XXX.XXX/rest/servicedeskapi/request/25871/comment/

To retreive the comments for the associated Service Desk issue. This works fine except that for one particular issue I am getting the following response (in JSON):

{
"errorMessage": "The request could not be found, or you do not have permission to see it.",
"i18nErrorMessage": {
"i18nKey": "sd.attachment.error.issue.not.found",
"parameters": []
}
}

I do, in fact, have permissions as the ticket is actually assigned to me, it exists, and I am working it. This call works great for other tickets. Thoughts?

Could be that request was created not from portal and request type is missing.

It sounds like a Jira bug to me. How is that request type missing raises an issue not found error.

Hi Kristian,

Hopefully you've figured this out by now but if not let me see if I can help.

  • Is this a Cloud instance or a Server instance?
  • Can any user make the call correctly and if so what permissions are different between the two accounts?
  • Are you using the Issue Key when making the call?
  • Are you able to get the data from any of the other fields on that issue individually?

I attempted the same call I am able to retrieve the results:

https://my.atlasurl.net/rest/servicedeskapi/request/ISSUE-2/comment/

This returned the following truncated example:

 {"_expands":["attachment","renderedBody"],"size":1,"start":0,"limit":50,"isLastPage":true,"_links":{"self":"https://my.atlasurl.net/rest/servicedeskapi/request/ISSUE-2/comment/","base":"https://my.atlasurl.net","context":""},"values":[{"_expands":["attachment","renderedBody"],"id":"10203","body":"This is my comment retrieved via API","public":false,"author":{"name":"ministrator","key":"ministrator","emailAddress":"my@email.com","displayName":"Branden McElveen","active":true,"timeZone":"America/Chicago","_links":{"jiraRest":"https://my.atlasurl.net/rest/api/2/user?username=ministrator","avatarUrls":{"48x48":"https://avatar-cdn.atlassian.com/3e73cdf5eb7a9feb3ef8c1b4e6ccbc08?s=48&d=https

I would try using the issue key, see if you can retrieve any other fields and check with another project admin and see if that makes a difference.  If none of that provides a path forward provide the answers to the questions and we'll see what else we can do.  If this is a Cloud instance please provide the Cloud URL.


Cheers,

Branden

Thank you for the response. This could happen for 1 request? If you look at the URL, I can change the request ID to + or - one (25870 or 25872) and I get responses just fine.

I just want to be clear before I go poking the database admin.

How to manage many similar workflows?

I have multiple projects that use variations of the same base workflow. The variations depend on the requirements of the project or issue type. The variations mostly come in the form of new statuses ...
