URL to bulk edit multiple issues

I have a script that takes two git branches, figures out the commits that have been added to one that aren't in the other, and then outputs the issues that are related to the commits (based on the issue key in the commit message)

Now I want to be able to take those issues and somehow launch JIRA with a bulk edit page for all those issues. This is so that when we prepare a release I can see what is going into the release, and then easily tag those issues with the fix version.

Is there a url that I can launch, that takes a list of issues, and sets up the bulk edit page?

Turns out there is a way to do this. You can use jql

https://project.atlassian.net/issues/?jql=Key%20in%20(KEY-1%2C%20KEY-2%2C%20KEY-3)

And then just use the Tools menu to bulk edit.

i am not suer whether it is possible in jira, but you can add fixversion to issue by using REST,

check this document to get sample codes to edit issue using rest

https://developer.atlassian.com/display/JIRADEV/JIRA+REST+API+Example+-+Edit+issues

https://developer.atlassian.com/display/JIRADEV/Updating+an+Issue+via+the+JIRA+REST+APIs

Yeah, I was aware of the rest api, but it would be nice to have a url something like:

https://project.atlassian.net/bulk?issue[]=ISSUE-1&issue[]=ISSUE-2&...

And then show the bulk edit page with the listed issues. If this isn't possible then I guess I will need to use the rest api.

i don't think that option is available but some one may help you on this!!

Well, looks like I need to use the rest api.
