Unable to access API Edited

Hello @Charlie Misonne  Sorry I can't make it clear, what I want to say is that for example, I want to Get all workflow schemes, I go to API [/rest/api/2/workflowscheme ] , but I get 404.A lot of interfaces are like this, is it because I have a lower version of JIRA?My current version is 8.13.0image.png

Hi @chuanSun

if the road via API is not working you could probably do a database query (assuming you are indeed using Jira Server - I might not following fully from your above discussion with Charlie but, so assuming you are on Jira Server).

Please note that accessing Jira's database is generally not advisable - it also bears some risk of accidentally deleting data.
Please never try to do a reporting out of database, the REST API should be the way to go.
In this special case however I see chances that you get the desired data from database directly.
Just please be cautious and if possible test queries (like this and also ones in future) on a test system.

A query I used in the past shows projects alongside with the "last updated" information and their project lead but also the Workflow Schemes assigned to each.
I think the information is useful in context (project <-> Workflow Scheme) but in case it is too much information given back you still could adapt the query. However, please test it in advance - whenever possible.

Like said above I would refrain from deeper/further queries against the database and never try to do reporting of any kind.

SELECT p.pkey, p.pname, p.lead, MAX(i.UPDATED) AS "last updated", MAX(i.CREATED) AS "last create", FROM jiraissue i, project p, workflowscheme w, nodeassociation n WHERE i.project = AND = n.source_node_id AND n.sink_node_id = AND n.sink_node_entity = 'WorkflowScheme' GROUP BY p.pkey, p.pname, p.lead, ORDER BY pkey ASC; 

It works on PostgreSQL and on some systems also on MySQL (tested).

Hi @chuanSun, welcome to the Atlassian Community,

I don't really understand your issue.

Are you tryging to get a workflowscheme? In that case you should specify the ID. Or are you trying to create one?

Also: make sure to include the context path in your URL. So if your jira runs on: the full URL is 
If you don't have anything behind the / it should be

The documentation about this REST endpoint can be found on

I think you might be confusing the cloud and server documentation. As you mentioned version 8.13.0 I assume you are on a server instance. I adapted the tags of your post.

This is the server documentation for your version:
And according to that page there is no endpoint to get all workflow schemes. Not sure why though...

Thank you for your reply. I was confused. There is no such interface in the server document, is there any other way I can get these data?
