How to access issue details using R?

I wish to access all issues and issue related details using R. Can someone help me with this?

From memory, have a look for RCurl - that enables R to issue http calls and grab the data returned.

With that, R should be able to call JIRA's REST APIs to pull data from JIRA (you'll need to find a JSON library for R as well, that's where my memory fails me)

Thanks Nic for your swift reponse. I tried RCurl with rjson. But, I am nto able to pull custom field info. Can you suggest me a solution for it?

Custom fields are returned when you ask for issue data.

Have a look at and the documents alongside it.
