Get list of projects and sort alphabetically

Currently, sending GET request to "". The projects retrieved are not sorted and I want it sorted in alphabetical order. Of course, it can be done in application logic but that would not be simple. Maybe there is a simple way using JIRA REST API?


I'm considering "" as I can specify an ORDER BY clause. Problem is I don't know how to retrieve the list of projects using this endpoint.


Question: Is there a rest api way to retrieve JIRA projects and sort them alphabetically?

No, the issue search (where you have a sort option) is for issues, not projects.

See for getting a list of projects, but you'll have to sort it yourself.
