How to authenticate JIRA access when querying through REST API with jsonlite::fromJSON in R?

I am trying to access JIRA issue details using jsonlite library as follows in vain:

jiradata <- fromJSON("https://xxxxxx.atlassian.net/rest/api/latest/search?jql=project=DATAX AND key=DATAX-1234")

I get the following error:

Error in open.connection(con, "rb") : HTTP error 400.

What am I missing here?

Have you tried encoding the url? Something like:

https://INSTANCE.atlassian.net/rest/api/latest/search/?jql=key%20%3D%20DATAX-1234%20AND%20project%20%3D%20DATAX

 

Also, please notice that the project key is already included in the issue key... your query could just be: 

https://INSTANCE.atlassian.net/rest/api/latest/search/?jql=key%20%3D%20DATAX-1234
