How can I extract jira release notes using the fix version

Hi all,

I am trying to extract release notes created by jira using the fix version as follows,

curl  --request GET 'https://xxxxx/secure/ReleaseNote.jspa?version=fixVersion&styleName=Text&projectId=projectID'

But i am not able to get the issue details using this curl command.

I would like to know how can i get the issue details like issuetype, ticketid, description of the issue of all the issues in a fix version  which is present in the jira release notes using a rest api.

please excuse if this does not help at all, I just found this in the documentation: There seems to be a feature for the release note api that allows to use a custom velocity template to create a user specific layout / content, e.g. adding custom fields: Creating a custom Release Notes template containing release comments (

Maybe you check this and verify, if this can be used to add the issue description.

Is there any way to do this???


Best Regards

Thank you so much for your time. I went through and it looks like there is no direct api call for my requirement.


Is there any other way to do this???
