Is there any way to get the url for the query which was used to fetch data?

I fetch the issues by running 


all_issues = jira.search_issues(query,maxResults=500)


I get the issues fields, IDs, labels and such data. But is there a way to get the url used to pull the data? To keep it simple, I want the link which when accessed gets me to the JIRA website for the respective 'query'. 

Thank you

Run the query and look in the url bar in the browser.

But if you're "pulling" the data, you probably mean you want a copy of it in a format for a computer to read rather than a web page.


I kinda found a work around and did the following:

  1. Every JIRA query/search page starts with this     ''.
  2. And as stated in the question I use                          'all_issues = jira.search_issues(query,maxResults=500)' to get the issues.
  3. So I use the query from the above line and pass it to urllib2.quote( ) to encode the query.
  4. So to get the url I have to do              "" + urllib2.quote(query)


Thanks @Nic Brough [Adaptavist] for the quick reply, appreciate it.
