Hi John,


Thanks for looking in to the query. I am already using the JIRA's REST api but the API is actually not fulfilling my requirement for data and I have to use a lot of the API together and then parse through data returned to get my required result.


I had seen a post that we are capable to actually create and use the our own customized API. Is it possible through the plugin option in JIRA or do we have an capability to create an webservice type something which can help me in the task.


Awaiting for reply


Thanks once again
