How can I get the changelog history for issues via API calls?

Tushar Rajvanshi March 18, 2024

We need to access the changelog history for all our issues in our project using either REST APIs OR the Jira python library. 

However none of these seem accesible. Can someone please suggest how to achieve this?

Hi @Tushar Rajvanshi and welcome,

via rest you can do that trhough the following /rest/api/2/issue/{YOUR_ISSUE_KEY}?expand=changelog

via phyton script you could use ChangeHistoryManager api (https://docs.atlassian.com/software/jira/docs/api/7.6.1/com/atlassian/jira/issue/changehistory/ChangeHistoryManager.html)

Hope this helps,

Fabio

Thanks @YY哥 

However, I am unable to access any endpoints using API 3. Also, when using the API2 I am able to access the issue but not changelog.

 

I tried making a request to the URL

1. https://jira.abc.com/rest/api/3/issue/abc-1234 - Returns 404

2. https://jira.abc.com/rest/api/3/issue/abc-1234/changelog - Returns 404

3. https://jira.abc.com/rest/api/2/issue/abc-1234 -Returns 202

4. https://jira.abc.com/rest/api/2/issue/abc-1234/changelog - 404

Rest api mentioned by @YY哥 are for cloud. That is the reason of the error code
