Hi mikkel,

Thanks a lot for sharing this URL. This will helps lot to prepaire my REST queires. btw do you have any code snipet for Green hopper REST client that i can used to integreat with my java application.

This doesn't work anymore

Hi Thomas,


No sorry.

I found that using a already created client (Java REST Jira client, in my case) had some disadvantages. So i ended up just using a REST libiray and implementing my own custom "client".

This gives much better control over the amount of calls. Jira's handling of REST calls, means that a new session is created for every call. So if the client isen't carefull, it creates A LOT of sessions. And might end up crashing JIRA, in a blazing "session owerflow" fire.

Thanks a lot for infomation Mikkel. This will helps me when developing my own client.

Hi Suraj,

To access the GreenHopper data using REST the following commands are useful:

1. Run your example rest command to get your RapidView ID:

curl -D- -u <user>:<pass> -X GET -H "Content-Type: application/json" https://<instance>/rest/greenhopper/1.0/rapidview

2. Run the following to get your list of Sprints ID's from the previous rapid view:

curl -D- -u <user>:<pass> -X GET -H "Content-Type: application/json" https://<instance>/rest/greenhopper/1.0/sprints/<RapidViewID>

3. Using the RapidView ID and Sprint ID you can run the following to get a list of your issues:

curl -D- -u <user>:<pass> -X GET -H "Content-Type: application/json"  https://<instance>/rest/greenhopper/1.0/rapid/charts/sprintreport?rapidViewId=<RapidViewID>&sprintId=<SprintID>
