Bulk update issue using REST API or JAVA SDK


Hi Team,


This is regarding Bulk update issues using REST API or JAVA SDK.

Using  IssueRestClient we can create bulk issues but not able to update in Bulk. We can only update one issue at a time.

Do we have any API or Java SDK for Bulk update of issues.

Thanks for your support. 

Best Regards,

Hi @prasad_507 , 

sadly it's not possible right now.

Please vote for this feature request if you are interested.

In the meantime you could create an automation rule where you pass the issues and edit them: 

  • create an automation rule with a webhook as trigger
  • execute rule with issues passed from jql
  • edit your issues with the actions (you can opt to not sent mails if needed)

Then simply save your automation and trigger the webhook. 

Hope this helps!

one more  question : If I follow automation rule, is it considered as one Request or multiple requests 

( From Billing point of view and performance point of view
