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



There's no search string in what you are passing, so it's just returning everything the user can see.
