Need some guidance on using the API


I'm trying to add a smart checklist to an existing issue using the API. To start, I wanted to pull the checklists from an issue using the API here: Get Checklists . The docs say that I have to provide the issue ID, but I've tried specifying it both using:{key}


and I get a 404 either way. What would be the proper URL to use for this API request?


Thank you,

After some fumbling around, I have been able to add a Smart Checklist to an issue by a PUT to this URL with the SmartChecklist as JSON: 


Hi Don!


Judging from the URL in your example, you are using Jira Cloud version, and Smart Checklist API is available for Jira Server/Data Center versions only. That’s why you get 404. 

For Server/Data Center instances the proper URL of the request would be 


Hope this helps!

@Don Wilcox,

If API is a crucial feature you need, you might try Issue Checklist Pro or Free.

They both offer integration with Jira API, so you can read or modify the checklist as explained in this guide:
