is it possible to use jira rest api with jira-python?


Having stumbled on jira-python, how can I use jira-python to perform the following JIRA rest api?

# GET http://<Your_JIRA _Server>/rest/api/2/issue/<Issue_Key>

GET 'http://dev:8080/rest/api/2/issue/mgrapp-1106'

Yes that is extremely possible:


from jira import JIRA
jira = JIRA(basic_auth=(un, pwd), options={'server': server})
issue = jira.issue(issuekey, fields='summary,comment,attachment')


That will retrieve the same information (although you will want to customise the fields that come back I expect.


Thank you! Your response is much appreciated
