Using JQL in perl

Hi All,

We have few teams who are directly connecting to JIRA DB as read access through perl and running SQL queries.

Due to DB structure change SQL queries are failing and causing issue.

To avoid such situations we need users to use JQL but we are not sure how to use JQL from perl code.

For sample we are using below code


my $sth_use = $dbh->prepare("use jira");

    my $sqlCmd = "select ji.issuenum, ji.SUMMARY, ji.ASSIGNEE 
                         from jiraissue ji, 
                              project p,
                              nodeassociation n,
                              projectversion pv 
                         where ji.issuestatus in ($gestatus) and
                               ji.project = p.ID and
                               p.pname = 'Projectname' and
                      = n.SOURCE_NODE_ID and
                               n.ASSOCIATION_TYPE='IssueFixVersion' and
                               n.SINK_NODE_ID = and
                               pv.vname in ('${fixVersion}', '$filterFixVersion', '$prebau') ${xj}";

    my $sth = $dbh->prepare($sqlCmd);




Thanks and Regards,

You and use JIRA Command Line Interface (CLI) and run the getIssueList command from perl. Use the jql parameter.
