jira.client.GreenHopper.rank Not Working


I'm doing an import from our home-grown task tracking system into Jira using the Python API and this call:


doesn't seem to be working. I've got it set up like so:

gh = GreenHopper(options, basic_auth=(username, password))
jql = 'project = MYPROJECT ORDER BY due ASC, priority DESC'
issues = gh.search_issues(jql)

for index, value in enumerate(issues):
if index != len(issues) - 1:
gh.rank(issues[index].key, issues[index + 1].key)

and would expect that my list of issues would then be ranked accordingly, but they aren't.

Am I missing something with that call?

Used the REST API for this. Took some digging but made it happen. Would be nice to have clearer docs for the Agile REST API too.
