How can i be able to get the response of an JIRA API call using cross domain GET or POST request.?

I am using Jquery for the above requirement.


type: 'GET',

url: 'https://--------------/rest/auth/1/session'',

crossDomain: true,

dataType: 'jsonp',

success: function (response) {

alert('success--' + response);


error: function (response) {




I am able to see the response in debugger in JSON format but i have to use dateType: jsonp due to cross domain request, else it throws error 415: Unsupported MediaType

So I get the following errors when i run the script:

SyntaxError: invalid label in Mozilla.

Uncaught SyntaxError: Unexpected token : in Chrome

Please help.

Where am i going wrong.?

Thanks in advance.

See the way jsonp is invoked for JIRA here

It may help you.

IT shows for GET requests. If i make any POST requests i get 415 unsupported mediatype error. Any suggestions regarding that.?

What's the post header being set? Check your developer tools in Chrome and see the header being sent

I get the post header :

Content-Type text/html;charset=utf-8
Date Wed, 30 Jan 2013 13:59:46 GMT
Server nginx
Set-Cookie JSESSIONID=AEAF6C3853868EB6920629F486A19C8A; Path=/; HttpOnly studio.crowd.tokenkey="";; Expires=Thu, 01-Jan-1970 00:00:10 GMT; Path=/; HttpOnly studio.crowd.tokenkey=qrk1dL4vKHcyOpspelmDDg00;; Path=/; HttpOnly atlassian.xsrf.token=B9V3-S7DT-R7Y6-F32Y|3bfef2a642091fb9bff59acb496616e7fd3b4aab|lin; Path=/
Vary Accept-Encoding
X-AREQUESTID 359x10274x1
X-Seraph-LoginReason OUT, OK

Is there anything wrong with the header being set?

Yeah, it shows ' Content-Type text/html' It should be application/json

Yes, i am sending it through jsonp, since json wont support cross domain calls.
If i use application/json the post request changes to OPTION.

Ah ok. No idea, never used jsonp with JIRA.
