Programmatically export JIRA workflow XML

Hi all,

I am trying to find a way to programmatically export a JIRA workflow to an XML file. I have written an (external) script which transforms the XML into a visualizable form, but as of now it needs a manual action to log into JIRA and export a workflow to XML... Is there any programmatic way to get the XML?

Thanks in advance

Best regards
