How to fetch the list of items in particular folder by using foldername instead of Id?

Hi all,

We are using R4J plugin for fetching the list of items from the particular folder.

But we feel difficult to find the Id of the folder.


IS there any API call to return the Id by passing the folder name with in the particular project ?

So far we are using the below API call


ABCD - project name

123 - Id of the folder, we should give the name instead.

Can you please provide some solution for this?

Thanks in advance!

Hello @Savithri Sankaralingam ,

sorry that we´ve missed your request. For such questions it would be great if you contact our support, so we can help you much easier:

In general there is no REST API to get the issues of a folder by folder name. But you can query the folder ID´s by the list of folders in a parent (e.g. root folder). please use

  • the same request as above without the ID (123) to get the issues from root folder
  • the request as above with ID -1 (minus one is the root folder)

Best Regards,
