How to Get Sprint Velocity Data via JIRA REST API?


I am looking for a way to obtain velocity data via JIRA server REST API.  I have been unable to find a way to do this and was hoping someone might have some insight on this?  I am basically looking to pull the data from the velocity report page, but for all past sprints.  When I do a REST call for all issues within a sprint, I am only returned the current data, however this is not what I'm looking for.  Any help or advice would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

Hi @John Consorti 

According to , the documentation is not full. So :

JIRA Agile REST API Reference does not contain any info about how to query Agile reports e.g. Velocity or Burndown.

However, there are available endpoints to achieve this, e.g.:

  • for Velocity:


Hope it helps !

Thanks for this. This works.

This only gives data for the last 7 sprints. Any ideas on how to get beyond those sprints ?

I'd also like to get more than 7 sprints of data.  I have little hope of getting more though since this looks like it's just the data from the web interface and there's no way I know of to get beyond that many in the web interface.  Hopefully I'm wrong.  Or someone could point us to a different way to get velocity beyond what this page gives us without buying an expensive add-on.
