Get confluence link in jira issue through the Jira API


Hello Jira community

I am trying to get the Confluence link referenced in a Jira issue. When I request all elements of a specific issue I can't find the location of the key that corresponds to the confluence link :

import requests
from requests.auth import HTTPBasicAuth
import json

url_base = ' = "DT-1554"'

auth = HTTPBasicAuth("", "YYYYYYY")

headers = {
"Accept": "application/json"
response = requests.request(
res = json.loads(response.text)

Can someone help me finding that missing field ?

Are you saying you can find it or you cannot find it? Basically you should be looking at the remote link of an issue to get the confluence link on a Jira issue. I believe that's how you get the link.


Absolutely, my issue was that I couldn't find it. The remotelink endpoint seems to work.

Thanks for responding me.
