We have a very old JIRA (Enterprise Edition, Version: 3.13.1-#333). I would like to call the SOAP services from WSDL XX/rpc/soap/jirasoapservice-v2?wsdl using SoapUi to first test it, then JAVA API.
However, I am not able to authenticate. I am trying with SOAP Basic authentication username/password but get the following exception:
Could you please help me to use the SOAP API?
Then, how can I do the same using JAVA code? I don't find any Maven dependency for this and not able to find any documentation.
Most of the resources for the SOAP API for Jira wound down a long time ago, but there are still some.
https://developer.atlassian.com/server/jira/platform/creating-a-jira-soap-client-4227095/ may be a good start for you, as it's got authentication and Java to do it with!
I would be remiss if I did not mention that you should really upgrade and move to using REST - Jira 3 is not secure, will not be patched and should not be exposed to the internet!
Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately, the URL you gave returns a 404.
In the meantime, I succeeded to use the API. You have first to run the login method that returns a token and gives this token to the other API you call.
I am doing it in JAVA but still have some issues with this old stack.
In any case, I agree on your last comment, but it is a technical constraint that I cannot overcome.
