import issue history using JIRA Rest API

Is there any way to import issue history in JIRA using using Rest API?Thanks.

No, there is no REST API for importing historical information - this can only be achieved when importing a project via the project import tool, but this will also overwrite any existing data. Why do you need this in the first place?

Purpose: I want to export Phabricator tickets into JIRA along with history. Using Jira csv importer plugin, I am able to import all phabricator fields except history. Please suggest me.

You can use the JSON importer to import history - see documentation and examples here.

The JSON importer can be accessed from the REST API here: rest/jira-importers-plugin/1.0/importer/json
