Are there any restrictions with the rest api and ondemand version of JIRA.

when i use CURL i get curl: (7) Failed connect to ####:443; Timed out

when i test the same command on a local test instance (not https) i don't have any issues.

Hi Saadiq,

Your command looks like it should work for JIRA OnDemand. I don't think there are any special API restrictions that would stop something like this from working.

The error from CURL suggests that there may be some firewall problems at your end. Are you able to run this command successfully?

$ curl https://jira.atlassian.com/rest/api/latest/issue/JRA-9

I can't think why you'd receive a timeout error otherwise.

Thanks Michael,

I also suspect it is firewall related... or perhaps our proxy is blocking accesing external sites via curl... as we have a configuration script for IE under LAN Connections etc...

Tested the above, and can't resolve host which is also what i get for my url...

i'll dig some more at my end...

BTW is there a value to reference an automatic configuration script...i.e putting the URL in the command?

According to this page, it's not possible to feed the same file into CURL. You will need to find out what the necessary proxy configuration is and run CURL with the "--proxy <[protocol://][user@password]proxyhost[:port]>" option.

Can you provide an example of the actual command you're running?

hi Michael,

Basically the below is what i'm running

curl -D- -u myID -X POST --data @LoadIssue.txt -H "Content-Type: application/json" https://hostedURL/rest/api/2/issue
