Jira REST: get rendered worklog comments for comments 21+ Edited


in our addon we used this rest call to get an issues worklogs rendered as HTML:


The catch here is that this call never returns more than 20 worklogs and i also could't find a way to access the worklogs using pagination (The call does not react to a startAt parameter and the docs don't mention pagination).

When i use{issueIdOrKey}/worklog-getIssueWorklog

to bypass this limitation the call does not offer the option to expand rendered fields.

The addon comes for server and cloud and i am wondering

- is there a way to get the rendered worklogs for cloud at all

- is there a way that works for server too without having to write a own rest service for this


thanks in advance

Hi Jens

We're on the cloud version. I use 


which gets all the worklogs for all issues in a sprint. As you say, this is restricted to 20 worklogs.

If there are more than 20 worklogs ( > 20) then I use


which gets the worklogs for a specific issue and returns them ALL - see the JSON below

"startAt": 0,
"maxResults": 23,
"total": 23,
"worklogs": [

Hi Warren,

i am looking for a way to get the worklog comments as HTML, not in the wikirenderer source format.
