Downloading XML export

I have successfully extracted a number of documents we have in Jira Work Management and parse the XML and put data into an access database to make some queries and reports.

Now I want to automate the XML download. I have found some VBA code but I cannot authenticate and successfully login.

I am trying now with JSON ], but, I can pull the data on the browser and it returns me the JSON document - so this is fine, but when do it programmatically it tells me I have no permissions.

here is my code:

Set myReq = CreateObject("WinHttp.WinHttpRequest.5.1")
myReq.Open "GET", "https://{my server}/rest/api/2/issue/BI-2393"

Debug.Print myReq.responseText

I get this error:

{"errorMessages":["Issue does not exist or you do not have permission to see it."],"errors":{}}

I think you'll need some type of authentication on the Jira side to allow the API access your instance.

Perhaps I should ask these permissions to the managers. Thanks for the tip...

@Gustavo Miller 

For the REST API calls, you need to pass in the authentication details in the payload.

from the code snippet, it is not apparent that you have passed the authentication creds (username, password/API token)


The error denotes that you are trying to access the link with anonymous user and this operation is not permitted for non authenticated users.

Indeed, you are right. I think I am starting in the wrong way. i think I need to read some more about the different services and how things work, before I can jump into developing applications to talk to JIRA.
