Accessing the Jira REST API of a On-Demand Jira instance


I am currently trying to create a migration tool to moove Issues from one Jira Instance to one hosted on Atlassians On Demand platform. Unfortunately the jira-rest-java-client (version 0.6-m3) is allways giving me a code 301 (Moved Permanently). The Url I am using is "" ... reading from the old repository works fine.

Is there anything special with the On-Demand Jiras? Does the URL have to be different? Is the Jira installation that new, that my rest client is too old for it? If yes, where do I get a version that works?

Aaaahh ... I hate when that happens ... the problem was simply that I had to use httpS instead of http ... sorry for having botherd you guys :-(

fyi... JIRA Command Line Interface 2.6.0 has a bunch of enhancements that were added to support my migration to an OnDemand instance. I will be posting more information on the migration in the next few days - for now see Migration from Plugin Studio

Just dropping a note in saying thanks for coming back to note the https problem. I was having the same issue, and made the same mistake. Your answer saved me some pain, and some velocity on my facepalm.
