API for automating integrity check in Jira

Can you please let me know a way to automate the Integrity checks run in Jira.
Jira instance is of version v7.2.9 (jira server)
Is there an API that we can use?


Appreciate any inputs in this regard.

Hi Deepa,

The REST API in Jira does not make this possible.   It's not clear to me if this can be called from the Java API at this time.

However I would not encourage the automating of this particular task.  This process should not have to be run regularly on the Jira instance.  It's really only there in order to try to help Jira recover from an unexpected problem with the database.

If you are seeing a need to regularly use this tool in order to fix something within Jira, then I would recommend further investigation into your environment so that we can better understand root cause and provide a better long term solution.


Hi Andy,

Thanks for your response.


Our Org uses a 5 node cluster with large number of users. We have performance issues in a regular basis because of which we are running integrity checks regularly. It helps us identify few issues and get them cleared.

When ever we have some performance issues which makes the entire Jira go down, we bring in the atlassian support and work with them to find the rootcause. Analysis is an on going initiative for all key performance issues. 

Triggering Integrity check from the UI is a manual job that we are doing. So, thought we can use some APIs which is available to automate it or find any other possibilities.
