I want to use curl to download the images I have on an issue (as attachments). The problem is the API doesn't return the URL that leads to these images.
The content field URL returned by the API is not what I'm looking for. When entered in the browser this url downloads the correct image, but since it doesn't actually point towards the image I can't use the curl function on it.
I actually have a library where i'm trying to make extracting data from Jira Cloud easier via REST API. Here's an example code to extract attachment information using python and searching with JQL. You can see how I implemented the method here on Github on line 265.
from jiraone import LOGIN, PROJECT
user = "email"
password = "token"
link = "https://yourinstance.atlassian.net"
LOGIN(user=user, password=password, url=link)
if __name__ == '__main__':
# the output of the file would be absolute to the directory where this python file is being executed from
# you can use any valid jql query
jql = "project%20in%20(COM%2C%20PYT)%20order%20by%20created%20DESC"
