How to use JQL


I m trying to get information about issues of a specific project (SAPBO). The project exists and there re more than ten issues related with this. My Jira user has assigneed 6 issues related SAPBO project.

I ve used all the posibilities by jql query, and i get back two responses (error or zero issues). Here i show you what i had tried and the results:

"https://<MyHOST>/rest/api/2/search?jql=project=SAPBO" Error 400

"https://<MyHOST>/rest/api/2/search?jql%3Dproject%3DSAPBO" ZERO ISSUES

You could consider using a REST-Tool (like the Plugin "RESTclient" for Firefox") to check the syntax of your REST-calls
