Unable to make a JIRA Object using the Python library

Hi, I'm running this bit of code trying to make a jira object:

#!/usr/local/bin/python3.6
import jira.client
from jira.client import JIRA
jira = JIRA()

And this is returning a huge number of warnings and errors, all of which read something like this: 

WARNING:root:HTTPConnectionPool(host='localhost', port=2990): Max retries exceeded with url: /jira/rest/api/2/serverInfo (Caused by NewConnectionError('<urllib3.connection.HTTPConnection object at 0x1044479e8>: Failed to establish a new connection: [Errno 61] Connection refused',)) while doing GET http://localhost:2990/jira/rest/api/2/serverInfo [{'params': None, 'headers': {'User-Agent': 'python-requests/2.18.1', 'Accept-Encoding': 'gzip, deflate', 'Accept': 'application/json,*.*;q=0.9', 'Connection': 'keep-alive', 'Cache-Control': 'no-cache', 'Content-Type': 'application/json', 'X-Atlassian-Token': 'no-check'}}]

 

I'm trying to figure out what the issue is, as I'd pretty much lifted the code from the documentation. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi Ross,

There are a couple things here:

I see you're being connected to port 2990 and getting a connection refused:

Failed to establish a new connection: [Errno 61] Connection refused',)) while doing GET http://localhost:2990/jira/rest/api/2/serverInfo

I was getting the same error initially until I saw this in the jira-python API documentation which lists the following as the default options:

DEFAULT_OPTIONS =
{'async': False,
'rest_api_version': '2',
'verify': True,
'agile_rest_path': 'greenhopper',
'server': 'http://localhost:2990/jira',
'rest_path': 'api',
'check_update': False,
'agile_rest_api_version':
'1.0', 'client_cert': None,
context_path': '/',
'headers': {'X-Atlassian-Token': 'no-check', 'Cache-Control': 'no-cache', 'Content-Type': 'application/json'},
'resilient': True}

In the Examples section it states:

By default, the client will connect to a JIRA instance started from the Atlassian Plugin SDK

You can override the above options with the override this with the options parameter.

I did get it working using the following:

from jira import JIRA
options = {'server':'http://localhost:8080'}
jira = JIRA(options, basic_auth=('UN', 'PW'))

Hopefully that helps!

P.S.  Can you also tell me which documentation you're looking at?  I've seen a lot of jira.client calls lately and I wanted to know where that was coming from.

Cheers,

Branden
