Yes, Jira has internal and external interfaces you can use.

The three main ones are

  • The ability to exchange information via both incoming and outgoing emails
  • A REST interface which other tools can use to talk to Jira
  • An internal API so you can write add-ons that run inside Jira and can talk to other tools

You have other options like reading the Jira database, but the routes you choose will be determined by what you actually want to do.

That sounds good. Where can I get infos for this API ?

I'm sure you won't be surprised to find that it's in the developer documentation
