Jira Swagger codegen compilation failure


I am actually doing a rest api client for Jira for integration tools.

Firstly I was going to use jira-rest-java-client-api but it cannot manage project and user...

I found many discussions on the Jira swagger but when I try to generate the client code with swagger-codegen-maven-plugin, I got a compilation error with Java 11 :[45,5] as of release 9, '_' is a keyword, and may not be used as an identifier


It looks like the swagger model is not working with java 11, so I changed my compiler to Java 8 but I got an other compilation error :[52,48] cannot find symbol
[ERROR] symbol: class IssueTypeIDs
[ERROR] location: class io.swagger.client.api.IssueTypeSchemesApi


I saw the class IssueTypeIDs has wrong name declaration, the file is named IssueTypeIDs but the class name is IssueTypeIds.

Related to this error report during compilation :

bad source file: C:\...\
file does not contain class io.swagger.client.model.IssueTypeIDs
Please remove or make sure it appears in the correct subdirectory of the sourcepath.


Do you know a solution to this? I saw this tutorial : is using codegen directly but I prefer to use the maven plugin to generate the client code during compilation if possible.


My environment :

swagger json : swagger-v3.v3.json 

codegen version : swagger-codegen-maven-plugin 3.0.25 (tries with 3.0.24 and 3.0.20)

Java 8.


Thanks in advance.

This should be fixed now. Try downloading a new copy of the spec.
