Jira doesn't have provisioning for special account for Rest API's. You will need to create a normal user account and need to provide required privileges (project access etc) to it and generate API token.

Dear DPK J,

 

Thanks for the input.

 

I have created the user account and generated API Token. Kindly let me know the how the endpoint URL will look like.

We are doing ServiceNow Jira integration. In this we access the end point url from JIRA and create a record in JIRA from ServiceNow.

Kindly advice us how to do.

Note: We are totally new to JIRA tool

Regards,

Priya

Endpoint url will look like,

https://<site-name>.atlassian.net/rest/api/3/<resource-name>

This page here list all API's and details on how to access them, and what permissions are required for what API.
