You can ignore my question. I figured it out :)


How does this work? The second argument is ProgressMonitor progressMonitor not an array list.

FOUNT OUT!. getIssueClient().getIssue(bi.getKey(),Arrays.asList(IssueRestClient.Expandos.CHANGELOG), null);

You have posted the question again as comment. Faysal's comment was the answer for your question. Read the REST API docs at, search google for how to make REST calls using you language of programming.

For history as Faysal says, pass the extra argument expand=changelog.

Also search this forum for many post on the same topic, for example

I believe what nipun was specifically asking was if/how he can do this using the JIRA REST Java Client Library. Is this possible?

Yes, this is what he wanted to know. He didn't post the question as comment, he tried to clarify since the answer has nothing to do with his question.
