In which table of jira database, we can find the jira issue ids of jira

Should be JIRAISSUE

I have checked it . I have the results with me. They are saved in the different id column of database in the JIRA issue table. However , I wanted to know how will I get to know where the the JIRA issue ids  are getting saved in database, which we can retrieve it from front end. Can I not get it from the database. for e.g TEST-300 is the JIRA issue id and I need to find it out from the database. From where will I get it.

TEST-300 is set together from PKEY and ID (separated by "-")

However pkey is null in jira issue table.

Ah yes, this is due that you can change the project key now. So you would need to get the pkey from table project. See also the DB schema documentation: https://developer.atlassian.com/display/JIRADEV/Database+Schema

There's a note about this in the Preparing for JIRA 6.1 page I believe

The Issue object (jiraissue table in the database) has now a new property called number (issuenum column in the database). The number property contains the numerical part of the issue key and the issue key is now represented by the number and project properties, rather than the key property (pkey column).


so to get the pkey-num combination e.g if issue is TEST-123 please run this query-

select p.pkey||'-'||j.issuenum from project p,jiraissue j where p.id=j.project and j.issuenum=123 and p.pkey='TEST';

Thanks Amit. It is a good answer.
