Is Greenhopper API deprecated


We have a use case in our project, for which the GreenHopper API <jira_url>/rest/greenhopper/1.0/rapid/charts/sprintreport?rapidViewId=<rapidViewId>&sprintId=<sprint_id> gives all the consolidated information about the completed issues, time logged, punted issues, incomplete issues etc. I was curious to know whether Atlassian has plans to deprecate this API ? 

I know that the documentation is no longer maintained, but there's no concrete information on API deprecation.

Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

Yes, it will go away. You should move to using the Jira Software REST API as soon as possible (it's very similar as it's based on the GH stuff, but it's a lot more detailed and powerful, as it's kept up with the Software improvements)

Thanks for the clarification @Nic Brough _Adaptavist_ ! Really appreciate it.

@Nic Brough _Adaptavist_ Nic, would you be able to point me to the appropriate docs that explain how to accomplish something similar to the Greenhopper rapidView queries that Vidit mentioned using the current Jira REST API? I have looked all over and I am not seeing where I can run a REST call that will return information such as: issues completedInSprint", issues nonCompletedInSprint, issues punted from sprint. You mentioned that the current REST API is similar and more powerful than Greenhopper, but I'm struggling to see how to implement those kinds of capabilities in a straightforward way. Any help appreciated. 

Thank you,


Greenhopper went away over a decade ago, and it never had any of the calls you suggest.  Try looking for the Jira Software REST API which replaced it.
