Is there an api to get all issues in a specific swim lane in an active sprint?

We have JIRA auto transitions moving tickets based on github commits.  It all works good, but we move everything into a "Ready for QA" state once a developer pull request is approved.  Once we are ready, we create a release branch.  I would like to query for all tickets in the "Ready for QA" state, and move them into "On Staging" swim lane we have as next step.


I was thinking can use the api to get list of those tickets, and have a script update them all.

To get all issues with a specific status you need to search using JQL.

What kind of API are you looking for? There is a Java API which you can use in groovy scripts - SearchService. There is also a REST API which can execute searches and return the results.

After you get all the issues, you need to iterate them and transition them to the next status - there are APIs for that as well.

I think you mean columns on the board, which represent status or groups of status.

Swimlanes go across the board, and the query for those would be very different.

yes, correct, I mean status.  Thank you.
