Performance Tunning on Jira



I've a Jira board, about 1300 issues inside, every time connection to Jira cost about 3 to 5 seconds, here is the code of Python for your reference.  Would you please share the way how to check and tune the performance?


from jira import JIRA

options = {
'server': 'https://****'
jira_user = '******'
jira_apikey = '******'

jira = JIRA(options, basic_auth=(jira_user, jira_apikey))

Hello @yuyongliao ,

The Code snippet you noted does not really test the performance of the REST API, but rather is the performance of the login to the instance after which point the calls can be executed.

And overall performance on the API is not as optimized as the application front end for performance and we have the following feature request tracking interest in implementing additional performance improvements, make sure to add a vote to help track continued interest in the feature:

But regardless, some details on API performance optimization options can be seen in the following article under the section "Lowering the request cost":

And in this Documentation under "Expansion, pagination, and ordering":
