How many projects do we have?

I have been asked to report on the number of projects we have in Jira.

I searched for this topic, and the only directions were to SYSTEM INFO, which does not look like my Cloud Jira panel.

In Jira Cloud, I just want to know how many projects exist. How? There does not seem to be a way to report on this, which is... odd.

Hi Jeff,

yes, it seems that there is no nice overview is existing currently.

You could query via REST API (also in your browser a quite good overview is returned) like:

In my example it gives me a total of 12 projects, which is correct (please note that the number can show wrong results if the requesting user is restricted for one or more projects):


More information about the endpoint is here:

In case you don't want to do that I'd copy out the list of projects and insert it in a spreadsheet and count lines - all in all not the greatest solution but the nearest you can get.


Thank you for your reply. I think that got me the answer using REST, though I did the cheapo browser window read rather than a REST client. 



This still works, but according to the docs, this method is deprecated, and I don't see a recommended replacement?

I would not worry too much about the deprecation label. In case it will be removed there will be likely a endpoint which will act as an successor. To date it would not be known to me the endpoint goes away by short notice.
