All worklogs for an issue through issue end point

Hi guys,

I have the problem that the rest endpoint for an issue


always returns only the first 20 worklogs. I would like to have all worklogs in the resulting object, is that possible? I need the same also for comments...

Edit: strange thing... the comments are not limited, all of them are returned. Why does the behavior differ between those two lists?

As nobody seems to be able to help me on this, should I raise a BUG for it? In my opinion the behavior is kind of inconsistant, espacially looking at worklogs and comments.

An answer from Atlassian support would be nice at this point, thanks!

Thanks for this answer. I already read this post, but the solution mentioned there "using the tempo rest api" does not solve my problem. Anyways, I really think that this behavior should be corrected so that comments and worklogs are returned the same way.

In that thread, it mentioned "Recursive calls would be fine, but I am not sure that I see a way to do it using only the Java API.", perhaps you can try to use the jira rest client,

I am not using Java so this is not a solution for me, but thanks for your answer!

What is the version of your JIRA? I just tested this and got more than 20 entries.
