I've read the documentation and I'm still a little confused as to how I begin using the Jira REST API. I am a new member of my company's Jira instance and they have tasked me with developing an external plugin which leverages some of the data available with the API. I don't know too much about how the software is set up other than it appears that we are not hosting it in-house. I'm very familiar with how REST endpoints work, JSON, and all of that I just don't know if everything is already accessible and if so, at what URL.
Thank you in advance!
You can find the REST specification here: http://docs.atlassian.com/jira/REST/latest/
Just access the urls in browser to see if it is enabled. If not, make sure the 'Allow Remote API Calls' is turned ON under Administration > General Configuration.
I don't see General Configuration on my Administration page, all I see is Projects, Project Categories, User Management, Look and Feel, Tabs, Help and Support, and Jira Import. Also, which URLs should I try? My instance of Jira is hosted at https://snydla.jira.com/, does that mean https://syndla.jira.com/jira/rest/api/2/component/10000 or any of the other exmaples should work?
Thanks for your help.
