I would like use my own java application to perform a searching on jira issue database and collect the returned informations about bugs opened for a especific project and put it into an object like "Issues" or something. I can do such thing? Anyone could help me?
Are you going to be searching a remote Jira application? If so, you can use Jira’s remote APIs to do this. https://developer.atlassian.com/display/JIRADEV/JIRA+Remote+API+Reference You could even do it over simple HTTP by getting back your resuts in XML format and parsing that. http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Displaying+Search+Results+in+XML
Right! Only remarking what I need, I want to construct a java application that checks the issues repository online of Jira with a query, searching for a especific set of issues opened and get this resulting set as a list of issues. I don't want to be forced to download any Jira plugins, but just java classes or packages that enables me to do this. Seems now I left clear what I need.
The REST api will help me in this task? Where I can download the Library?
Lets start again.
You are building a java app that resides outside of JIRA and needs to talk to JIRA and get a list of issue from a project or multiple project.
To do this you have few choices
1, Talk to JIRA via SOAP
Above page all the information you need to build a SOAP client for JIRA download the dependency api's where required.
Has all the information related to REST api in JIRA
If you are intrested only in querying your JIRA for issues have a look at here
No need of any classes to be downloded and added as dependency in your app, all you need is ability to parse and convert JSON strings in to objects.
3, I wont not advice this and your JIRA team might say NO NO for this.
there is nothing in the world stopping you from directly querying the database that JIRA talks to all you need is the connection details ofcourse.
has the schema information
have fun coding
In the past, Portfolio for Jira required a high degree of detail–foresight that was unrealistic for many businesses to have–in order to produce a reliable long-term roadmap. We're tur...
