How to get all issues of a project using Rest API


I'm working on a project to retrieve some info from JIRA using it's Rest APIs.

I just have project name with me. Requirements are:

1. How to get project key from only project name?

2. How to fetch all the unresolved issues of that project?

I went through REST documentation, but did not find much.


As you might have guessed I'm new to Jira.

So, please suggest.


Thank You

HI @rahul saini ,

Below API will help to get issues of particular project



ABC=Project Name

1000= maximum 1000 can see in one JSON file.

Thanks, but how can I filter on the basis of resolved/unresolved?

Hi @rahul saini ,

You can adjust your jql query in above API. I just used Project=ABC like wise you can add other conditions too.



hi ,

Can we add multiple projects over here to get different project's issue list.

How to provide pagination for this query? I have more than 3000 records, but i'm getting only 1000 by using maxresults.

the /rest/api/latest/search gives back a response you could use for pagination by default. For instance, the response will look something like the following:


"startAt"0,                   // tells you from where JIRA started looking for you

"maxResults"50,        // how many it sent you in this response

"total"5000,               // how many it actually has in total

"issues": [0...49]         // the 50 issues(maxResults) you asked for



In the next request you could then send the param startAt=startAt+maxResult (0+50, in this case) which will then return





"issues": [50...99]


On a side note, if you give maxResults=-1 JIRA will provide you as many results as it can, depending on what's configured on your JIRA instance by the admin


And, yes you can get results for multiple issues. Just give project in (p1, "p2 new") etc

project is not empty give all issues in all projects

Note that the double quotes are needed if the project name has multiple words with space in between. Also while using double quotes you might need to consider encoding or escaping it based on what client or programming language you are using to test the request


Hope this helps

Hi, I tried  project in (p1, "p2 new")  to get issue data for multiple project but getting error "(400): Bad Request".

@Jogin Joy While your suggested approach is a good start... but it doesn't guarantee a sequential result i.e. you can start from 0 and then 0+50 and so on.. but this 0, 50 is not co related to Jira key...

I stumbled since I'm having same question...

Hi there,

You probably need to get all projects (/rest/api/2/project) and then parse your result and find the project that matches your project name.
