This code snippet will point you in the right direction

curl --user<api_token> \
  --header 'Accept: application/json' \
  --url ''

All the calls are documented here -

Hi Steve,


Thanks for your reply. Upon running the curl command i am facing an error saying " api_token: No such file or directory" .

How does the above command worked for you.

If I am running it on a local server I use the following

curl --user steve --header 'Accept: application/json' --url 'http://localhost:8080/rest/api/2/project'


Substite the user and the url for your own ones.

Hello @Steve Thornhill @Ipsita Dash 

Here we are getting all the data but i just need project keys or project names, how do we get it?

This worked for me:

curl -D- -u user:password -H "Content-Type:application/json" -X GET -k https://your-jira/rest/api/2/project 2>/dev/null | egrep -o 'key":"([A-Z]+)"' | cut -f 2 -d: | xargs
