I am not sure that your question is clear.

Issues do not have columns, they are shown in columns on boards, depending on their status and the board configuration.  So I don't quite know what you are looking for.

Do you mean you want to get the current status of issues from a REST call?

Yes I'm getting data into JSON using REST call but now how to loop through the JSON file and get each column values from it to an CSV. Pls share any sample on it possible.

I can't help you with the python, it's on my to-do list to learn it.

All I can tell you is that you'll need to read the board configuration to see what status are mapped where, and then go through the JSON to work out where each issue falls based on its current status.

Hi @Jack

Here is the Doc ref

It's REST API which provides the data& querying


Would return all the fields

As given in the doc, you can also query specific fields as well

This parameter may be specified multiple times. For example, fields=field1,field2& fields=field3



Thanks @Pramodh M - I got all the issues in a JSON format {data here } how can I get all the columns in that string separated by , into Data frame..


Thanks again..

I was able to get all the data from Issues to a Json file but now I have to read that file and get all the column names and data into a CSV..any sample code will help us a lot
