Please share some link or any document to help me from the beginning with JIRA API functions description.

90% of sciripts begins with the ComponentAccessor class.

You can find API about the class here:

You need to import the class first in your script:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

 Then you need to define, what you mean. You can get all kind of managers ((IssueManager, ProjectManager, JiraAuthenicationContext) and so on) through the class  and then use the methods of managers to solve your requirements.

Thank you so much..

Hi @srishti singh ,

You can find interesting Groovy use cases on my new blog, where I will be sharing examples of Groovy usage in real-life applications.

I encourage you to have a look at it and sign up for the newsletter, there will be more interesting stuff there.
