Create new project via rest api over https


I'm pretty new beginner with Jira REST api.

I've managed to compose a simple .net program that fetches a list of projects and issues.

My current task is to create a bridge via our own propriety projects managements system and Jira, therefore i need to be able to query projects,create projects and sub projects and report hours and assigned resources.

Are all the activities I've described are supported by REST api?

If you have links and maybe some examples how to, it would be great smile


Kind regards,

Ofer S. Hai

Methods like create project are not exposed via REST API. See for the full list of supported methods.

Can i create issues and tasks via REST api ?

Can i assign an issue to a sprint ?

Yes. Assigning issues to Sprint needs JIRA Agile REST APIs. It is not public but you can figure it out from the calls using Firebug or Chrome developer tools and use them.

I found a method to create new project on the following page.

Isn't Create Project method available now (or not implemented yet) ?

Are there any plans to add the ability to create a project to the API?
