is it possible to make a JIRA rest call with Summary of the bug?


As far as I know, we can make Jira rest call based on JIRA ticket ID(we will get full details of the ticket.) Can we do same rest call based on Ticket "Summery"


thanks in advance

If by "based on", you mean "make a call using the ID as part of the url", then no, you can't do that with summary.  The ID is unique and part of the issue's url, but a summary is a field on an issue and may not be unique, so it can't be used as a unique identifier.

You can however run searches over REST, so you can do "Summary = <something>" and you'll get a set of issues with that summary back from it.

thanks nic ...I got it..
