When i tried to retrieve the Test Cycles created in Jira through Zephyr for Jira REST api call , it is giving me an empty array {} . How to make use of Zephyr for jira REST api ? Is there any configurations to be done to solve the issue or we need to Upgrade the current version of Jira and Zephyr for Jira add-on ??

Hello MohammedKamil,

When you are trying to fetch the Test Cycles, you have to pre authenticate JIRA so that the JIRA allows the API to get the data you are fetching.

Please check if you are autheticating JIRA before you fire the API call to fetch the Test Cycles. Also you have to cross check that you have necessary permissions to access the data in JIRA.

Please go through the online Documentaion avaialble for complete API description by accessing the link

Also access the below link for some sample scripts.

It is not mandatory to upgrade Zephyr add-on if you are using version 2.x

Thank You.
