Hi Mikkel,

Currently, it's not possible to retrieve XML data instead of JSON. There's an explanation on the reasons at https://developer.atlassian.com/display/JIRADEV/JIRA+REST+API+Version+2+Tutorial#JIRARESTAPIVersion2Tutorial-IntroductiontoJIRA'sRESTAPI


Since this is a older post, could you please let me know if currently it is possible to retrieve JIRA Rest API response in XML format?

I have the same question. Can I use content-type header related to XML?
