Bulk transition through JIRA Rest API


I have a list of bugs in JIRA. Now I need to move a bulk of defects from open to closed status through JIRA Rest API, without iteration, since web service call is costlier.

But I can't find any API expect this, which will do one by one:


Is any other solution available for this? 

Pls clarify...

it has to happen through JIRA Rest API? In JIRA itself there is a bulk tansition option. Its quite unhandy though. Many clicks involved. After all you can implement your own rest service which is not iterating but doing it in one call.

Thx for replying. Yes, it has done through JIRA Rest API only. Pls let me know, how to develop the, our own rest service? Whether we need to develop any plug in for this? Pls guide...

yes you can develop a plugin which contains nothing but that service. Its quite easy task if you are a little bit familiar with implementing rest services. Some documentation worth looking at: https://developer.atlassian.com/docs/atlassian-platform-common-components/rest-api-development/rest-plugin-module

Thx Alexej for suggesting a solution...
