Use the REST interface to create (and update) the issue in Jira from your other tool. You don't need any plugins to use REST, just make sure it's enabled in your general configuration in Jira.

Thanks Nic. I will check in jira general config.

Hi Nic,

i couldnt find any option to enable the REST API,

is it available for JIRA version 4.3.2 ?

REST was introduced in version 4.0 when gadgets arrived (actually, you could make it work in 3.later if you tried hard)

However, the option is listed under something like "Enable remote access via xml / xml-rpc". Can't remember the exact phrase for 4.x, sorry

Thanks Nic, I enabled it.
Can i use REST API without having REST API Browser ?

You can use it any way you want. It's there, in the application, listening for incoming connections. Doesn't matter how you do those connections, as long as they're in a format it understands

You don't need a plugin. Jira exposes a REST interface.

If you're writing a plugin, then you probably want to read https://developer.atlassian.com/display/JIRADEV/JIRA+Plugin+Guideand then mark Boris's answer right.

What do you mean by accessing JIRA API ?

If you're asking for maven dependencies :

<dependency>

            <groupId>com.atlassian.jira</groupId>

            <artifactId>jira-api</artifactId>

            <version>${jira.version}</version>

            <scope>provided</scope>

        </dependency>

        

        <dependency>

            <groupId>com.atlassian.jira</groupId>

            <artifactId>jira-core</artifactId>

            <version>${jira.version}</version>

            <scope>provided</scope>

        </dependency>

Thanks all for the Reply

actually, we have 1 inhouse tool, we would like to integrate that tool with JIRA
and we would also like to create issue in jira remotely(not using JIRa)

Thanks Nic. it is solved now. sorry for my late reply.
