How to get specified column to display via jira rest api

hi, i use jql to get a list of basic issue items, and i want to display specified columns, like "Summary", "Created data", "Reporter", how to do this? Thanks in advance:)

my code is here

public static void main(String[] args) throws URISyntaxException {
		final JerseyJiraRestClientFactory factory = new JerseyJiraRestClientFactory();
		final URI jiraServerUri = new URI(JIRA_URL);
		final JiraRestClient restClient = factory
		final NullProgressMonitor pm = new NullProgressMonitor();
		System.out.println("Initial done");
		String jql="status in (Open, \"In Progress\") AND created >= 2014-07-29 AND created <= 2014-07-30";
		SearchResult sr = restClient.getSearchClient().searchJql(jql, pm);
		ArrayList<BasicIssue> issueList = (ArrayList<BasicIssue>) sr.getIssues();
// Now i can get all the issues, how can i get specified attribute, like "Summary", "Created date", or "Reporter"? I can only find the "key" attribute in BasicIssue

Hi Ning, You can iterate the issues coming from the SerachRequest. If you have aware of jira api, you can use the below code snippet,

SearchResult sr = restClient.getSearchClient().searchJql(jql, pm);

for(BasicIssue basciIssue:sr.getIssues()){

MutableIssue issue=ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager().getIssueObject(basciIssue.getKey());

//From this issue you can get the all issue details





Hope may this helps you.
