Pagination is failing for issueType resource



I was trying pagination for below API,



But, the API is not paginating the results and returning the entire issue types.

Hi Mayur

For the example call that you've given, you're asking it to only return 2 items and to start at the second 1 - is this what you wanted?

What results do you get? What results are you expecting?

Hi Warren,

Yes, I am expecting 2 items and that too start from 1.

But it seems like there is no query parameter support for this API as per ,

Currently, I am getting entire set of records, in this case 54 issueTypes.

From your link, it says that there are no parameters with this, so it can't be paginated. You'll just have to pick up all the items in one go


Thanks Warren. (Y)

It looks like Atlassian doesn't provide pagination on some endpoints of Jira Cloud REST API, like this case.

Since you're working with issue types, I noticed some weeks ago that the REST API retrieves the issue types created on projects that uses the template Agility. 
You can create issue types on that project with the same name of existing ones on Jira. If you check the issue types pages on Jira, it won't show the issues types from the Agility project. Although, using the API we get issue types with duplicated names 🙂
I think Atlassian Support created an improvement about this one, I'm not sure if it's the correct behaviour...
