When you query issues from Jira what is the response status? I can not find it on your screenshots

That is what the response, it is eempty

Each response has a status. It is a number. If the response is successful then  it returns 2xx. In your case the response would be 405 "Method is not allowed". You could make a guess out of it that GET is not allowed. After it you should open the REST API Reference

You could see there that for the Rest Call you are trying to do there is only the POST method which will let you to create an issue. 

You are trying to select issues, that is why you should use

GET /rest/api/2/search

Hi @srinivas annem,

that endpoint doesn't exist for a GET.

It only exists for a PUT to create Issues (Create issue).

Could you try a get to an endpoint below that ... for example:

GET /rest/api/2/issue/{issueIdOrKey}

With the IssueKey of one of your existing Issues?



Thanks @Christian Reichert,


Its accessible by using /issue/{issueIdOrKey}.


Is there any way to list all issues under a project. 

Hi @srinivas annem,

the GET /rest/api/2/search that @Alexey Matveev posted is probably what you are looking for.


Your JQL would then look like "project = <MYProject>" i.e. "project = Support-Test"

It's the same JQL that you use on the Search Issues interface within Jira.
