Converting JQL to get a list of stories worked on during a time window using the Jira API


I have a JQL query I use in Jira I'd like to convert to a Jira API call.

Having gone through the API documentation, I can't see how I might easily achieve this, and would appreciate any advice. 

I want to get the list of stories that have a changed to a given status in a given time window. The JQL is as follows:

  issuetype in (Story, Bug, Release)

  and status changed to ( "In development",  "In Code review", "In testing")

  during ("2021/03/01", now())

I have tried   GET /rest/api/3/worklog/updated, but this doesn't seem to work. 

Any advice greatly appreciated.

Hi @Darryl Blackwell -- Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

I am using Cloud version, but I found this documentation on JQL searches using the server REST API.  Please check if that helps you.


Best regards,


Hi @Darryl Blackwell ,

You can pass jql as parameter to the search rest api below /rest/api/2/search?jql={yourJQL}
