Question about API


I am a developer who just registered on your website for the JIRA service.

I would like to know how I can activate the REST API?

Below is the link I found for the documentation.

Do you have any examples for use, how can I connect to the API?
PS: I use php for development.

I have another question, can I list all the users that exists in my account at the same time with the API?

Thank you

REST is always active in later JIRA versions - it doesn't actually work properly without it any more.

For the examples and coding, have a look at and look through the rest of the document tree.

Thank you Nic for your reply.
I use the version that is on the cloud. In the examples I see only localhost. Does the API not work for Jira in cloud?

Thank you

The API for Cloud is the same. 


To expand on Nic's answer, you need to use your cloud instance URL:


For example, at stratejos can access our REST API at our cloud instance with the following:

Try following the instructions here:

Substitute the domain they have (http://kelpie9:8081/) with https://[yoursubdomain]
