Enable REST API on JIRA side

We would like to connect our products with JIRA and automatically raise JIRA ticket.
I know I need to enable the REST API, but I don't know how to enable it on the JIRA side.
Could you support me?

There is nothing to "enable", the REST API is a core component and Jira does not work unless it is available

You just need to find or write code that talks to it.

As per my knowledge, REST API is enabled by default.

try the following URL to verify


this URL gives all projects available in your JIRA System.

Before checking, don't forget to login with your credentials and use another tab for checking the API URL.



Thank you, every one!
I can set up.


I have additional question.
When I create s ticket with REST API, the reporter is always as developer name.

Could I change the reporter setting?
