Thank you..i am able to read the description.

Now when new ticket is arrived to my jira account i have to fetch description automatically. Am trying for that.

Can you help me.

@AnnapurnaI have already replied for this in your other question.

In external environment, you only have two possibilities, Polling Search API, or Webhooks.

I am trying to fetch latest comment from JIRA ticket. 

i used this in python script.


<class 'jira.resources.PropertyHolder'>

this is the output i received.

Please let me know what is the issue

You need to do something like this,

comments =  issue.fields.comment.comments

for comment in comments:
    print("Text: ", comment.body)

You have two ways to do this,

  1. Using Jira Python (python wrapper for calling Jira API's)
    1. Reference -
    2. Comments Example -
  2. Using rest API's provided by Jira
    1. You will need to use 'requests' module from python (or any other) to simply consume Rest API provided by Jira
    2. API Reference -
    3. Get comment based on issue -

Can you also mark this as accepted solution if someone is looking for comprehensive solution.
