Is it possible to use an API call to get all issue ids that are in progress by assignee?

I want to use an API call to get all issues that are listed as "in progress" where the assignee is a specific user. I have a could of questions: 1) is this feasible to obtain through an api call and 2) what would be the best approach to obtain the information?

1. Yes this can be obtained using API call.

2. Best way to get this is issue search api that takes JQL statement.


Here is reference to that api -


And here is curl example,

curl -D- -u <USER_NAME>:<PASSWORD> -X GET -H "Content-Type: application/json" <JIRA_BASE_URL>/rest/api/2/search?jql=<JQL_QUERY> 

Above you can replace JQL_QUERY with url encoded,

status = "In Progress" AND assignee = "<ASSIGNEE_NAME>"

This is very helpful. Thank you!
