R can issue REST calls to fetch data from Jira - see for language-agnostic guides.

Thanks Nic for your quick response.

I tried GET("",authenticate("username", "password", "basic")) using R but not getting list of projects.Can anyone share some idea as how to proceed further.

Thank you


Does that R function build a valid url for REST interaction?

Yes,I could get id,key,name of projects.Now trying to get issues related to each project.

Hello @Nic Brough [Adaptavist]

when I try using this GET("",authenticate("username", "password", "basic")),I am getting only issues related to a single project.Why am I not getting other projects related issues?I tried using jira content pack for Microsoft power bi,still getting same output.Please assist me.

Thank you
