Cant access data from Jira Rest API

Hi All,

I have created a atlassin account for testing the Jira rest api and created a project and  tickets under it.

I am able to access the projects but not the issues under it. Please find below for more info


Could someone please help me with this.

Your Rest call is trying to do a GET to the endpoint api/2/issue   However if you look at the reference guide for JIRA REST API, you will see that it is not possible to do a GET to that endpoint alone.

You could do a Get to GET /rest/api/2/issue/{issueIdOrKey}

But you would have to know the issue ID or the Issue Key in question to get information on that specific Jira issue via REST.

If you don't know what the issue keys are in Jira, then you might just try to do a JQL search on the api/2/search endpoint and leave the search parameter empty.  This in turn should return all the issues in Jira this user can see.
