how to enable remote api for jira


2 answers

Hey Kandakatla!

Give this a shot:

(Cog Icon) -> System -> General Configuration -> Edit Settings

From there, under Options, there should be a line item called Accept remote API calls.  Make sure that's set to On.

Depends on the version.

In older versions, the remote API is enabled by default, but if you have chosen to turn it off, Cody's answer is spot-on

In more recent versions, JIRA relies on it internally, so you can't turn it off, it's always there.

That's great to know, thanks Nic!
