Help with wget updating a saved filter

I am trying to change a saved filter remotely using wget.

When I run this:-

wget --no-check-certificate "http://almtools/jira --action updateFilter -id \"101754\" --search \"key =jdcmast-2111\" --user $USER --password $PASSWORD"

I get the following:-

Resolving almtools (almtools)...
Connecting to almtools (almtools)||:80... connected.
HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 403 Forbidden
2016-07-19 08:45:29 ERROR 403: Forbidden.

Any help on this is highly appreciated.

The parameters which you are using are for JIRA CLI, not for wget.

How do I get the wget parameters?

Updating a filter through the REST API requires a PUT method - wget cannot do that. You need to use cURL.

Something like this:

curl -s  -u <user>:<password>  https://<jira host>/rest/api/latest/filter/<filter id> -X PUT -H "Content-Type: application/json" --data '{"name":"<filter name>", "jql": "<new JQL>"}' -v

Make sure you understand what you are doing - read about cURL and read about JIRA REST API.

Using Trello to manage events

As a Jira power user, I was at first doubtful that Trello could benefit my workflow. Jira already uses boards (ones you can customize!), so why would I even need to use Trello?! In this post you will...
