GET absences via REST API in BigPicture


I am looking for a REST call to get the absence of team members in the plugin BigPicture for Jira. 

Unfortunately, the documentation is very poor and I do not find anything for the plugin BigPicture in connection with REST API.

Thanks for helping!

Hi Lisa-Marie,

Please raise a Service Desk ticket right here and we will help you with REST API. Currently, we do not have a public REST API but we are planning to share it in the near future.



Hi Marcin, 
is there any chance to access the BigPicture REST API from Jira Cloud?

We are also looking for a solution to insert / sync the absences of our teams with BigPicture.


Hi Georg

Yes, you could access BigPicture's REST API from Jira Cloud but it's trickier than on Jira Server, since it involves communication between third-party servers and a somewhat difficult token generation. And so we normally tell clients that there is no REST API in BigPicture for Cloud, although it does exist, same as with BigPicture for Jira Server.

With BigPicture Server there is the private REST API. 'Private' means it works the same as 'public' but it might change without notice. To tell you the truth, it might change weekly, as well as remain unchanged for years. And so, we don't advertise it much. Instead, we send a datasheet of the private API to those, who request it.

Why wouldn't we publish that datasheet on this forum? Because we register clients' requests.

What do you think?
