Python jira api fetch fields

We have JIRA python scripting setup for our cloud instance and works great.

Recently we had a requirement to fetch fields mentioned below :

project Category
user start,
end date 
We could not locate the api function in python to get the above fields.
Is there a way to fetch from JIRA cloud instance ?

  • Project Category can be retrieved on a simple JQL (try using the JIRA REST API for this). 
  • What do you mean by User Start and End Date? There is no such thing in JIRA but you can generate something like it. You can use "When is the first date that this users was assigned to an issue and when did he last worked on an issue"

Hi Gabrielle,

We want to retrieve the project category based on project name or project key ??Can that be done?

Basically our script is fetching projects created in Jira and we also want to retrieve their respective categories along. Can you suggest the best way to achieve it?

In the JIRA REST API /rest/api/2/projectCategory /rest/api/2/projectCategory/{id}
