Using Search API how to get all WorkLogs

I am using Python and Jira REST APIs to get all the issues logged against a project and the worklogs corresponding to the issue

payload_dict['expand'] = []
payload_dict['jql'] = "project = TEST AND updated > '2020-01-01 00:00'"

field_list = [
payload_dict['maxResults'] = 100

When the worklog object is returned, i am getting below json object inside issues.fields.worklog. Since i am not getting the next Url for this nested worklog object, i am not sure how do i get remaining objects of the worklog, if it has more than 20.

Any suggestions will be helpful.

"startAt": 0,
"maxResults": 20,
"total": 200,
"worklogs": [

Hi @Vishal Biyani ,

I would recommend you to use issue search endpoint for getting only list of issues and then Get issue worklog endpoint for getting worklogs for each found issue. There are query parameters like startAt, maxResults etc. available.

@Hana Kučerová Thanks Hana. This is exactly what i ended up doing this. So if issue search returns, total records in worklog as say 38, i am firing the Get issue worklog to startAt 21 and get the remaining work log items

Hi @Vishal Biyani Did You figured out that issue.

If u Figured out issue please let me know. 

Thanks in advance

Below is the high level approach i used,

1. I used below end point to get 100 results at a time and looped through the result set.



2. Check  

if issue['fields']['worklog']['total'] > 20:
  Then use /rest/api/3/issue/{ret_issue['key']}/worklog end point to get worklogs starting from 21st record

Note: As per Step 1, issuekey value is available in the json response ({ret_issue['key']})

Hope this helps
