To develop a command line interface where a text or XML file can be sent to a JIRA to execute multiple individual/unique tasks.

I have 100 JIRA issues I want to link to 100 other jira Issues (one-to -one). I've been reading up on Bulk Actions, but I don't see .I need this to develop a command line interface where a text or XML file can be sent to a JIRA to execute multiple individual/unique tasks.

Any help??

I have no idea how to interact jira through command line.

Thanks in advance

Alekhya.

The Jira command line "plugin" actually lives outside Jira on a client machine. You don't install it in Jira.

If you write your own command line, you will need to do it the same way - write something that talks to Jira via REST (the Jira command line plugin uses a mix of REST and SOAP, although it may have moved to nothing but REST in later versions, as SOAP will be dropped in Jira 7+)

If for some reason, you can't use the Jira command line, then you'll need to write something else. Use anything that supports REST calls and start with https://docs.atlassian.com/jira/REST/latest/

Look at JIRA Command Line Interface. It is likely it will cover your use case including bulk operations using one of the run like actions.

i could not get how i can perform unique individual tasks like...

Example:

50 issues to link with 50 different issues ,
