Is it possible to execute a jira scriptrunner script from outside jira?

I have a script in scriptrunner in Jira, that I can execute in the console correctly.


Is it possible to somehow execute that script from outside Jira, for example from Bamboo?

Hi @Ricardo Martinez yeah you can execute scripts which are stored on Jira Server via REST API. It is described here:

In section Executing Script Console Scripts Remotely

Thanks Martin.

Its exactly what I was looking for.


And i have it working now!  ;)
like this:

curl -u admin:admin -X POST "http://<jira>/jira/rest/scriptrunner/latest/user/exec/" -H "X-Atlassian-token: no-check" -H "Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded; charset=UTF-8" -H "Accept: application/json" --data-urlencode "scriptFile=foo/bar.groovy"

Do you know how can I send an argument to the script with the previous command?

Hi @Ricardo Martinez , sorry. I do not know how to pass parameters :(

You can send a "body" for a POST call using standard REST API formatting. Inside the scriptrunner script you then need to process it. You should use a standard JSON format so it's straight forward. The body is only available for POST calls. 

You need to include:

import groovy.transform.BaseScript
import groovy.json.JsonBuilder
import groovy.json.JsonSlurper

and then in your REST endpoint:

yourrestapi( httpMethod: "POST",
groups: ["jira-administrators"] ) {

MultivaluedMap queryParams, String body ->

String jsonString = body
JsonSlurper slurper = new JsonSlurper()
Map parsedJson = slurper.parseText(jsonString)
String jsonPARM1 = parsedJson.get("PARM1")")


where your JSON body would be something like {"PARM1":"parm1 value"} and any other parameters you need. You can even pass arrays and retrieve inside the groovy script as lists with:

List jsonLIST= parsedJson.get("LIST")

and reference as



jsonLIST.each { ... }
