JIRA API base URL Edited

I have setup JIRA with a base Url of jira.test.dev. Everything works well and I can access the rest api, however, it returns something like




when i get http://jira.test.dev/rest/api/2/issue/DEV-35.

This gives me issue with the Jira ruby gem, as it fails to fully retrieve issue

Not sure how to fix this. I am running this on JIRA 7.3.7. What is strange is that it worked a couple of days ago and I have not changed anything in the configuration since. Also noticed the same issue on a different instance of JIRA (7+).

I've noticed in the documentation that there is a setting
called restApi2BaseUrl, but I don't see a way to change it.

Please try adding port number to the bsae url as in http://jira.test.dev:8100/rest/api/2/issue/DEV-35

No, this means the baseurl is set to localhost as apposed to the FQDN or short DNS name of the machine. Updated this in the general config will produce the right url.

As you can see from the post the base url is set correctly to the DNS name of the machine.
