We are currently looking into implementing a more automated interface between our accounting system and Tempo.
The only thing I could find was retrieving all existing accounts through
However, this adds unnecessary complexity and performance impact to what could (and should) have been a really simple API mapping.
It is not possible to retrieve an account by it's key in Tempo Accounts REST API. However, it is possible to retrieve an account by ID. Please see below:
To view the ID number of existing accounts please hover over account in the Accounts list. The ID number will be displayed at the end of the url in a pop up that appears to the bottom left of the screen.
Information on account REST API can be found at: https://tempoplugin.jira.com/wiki/display/JTMAC/Query+Existing+Account+Data
But please note that the REST API is a work in progress and is subject to changes. Product updates may cause significant changes in function without advance warning
JIRA documentation on REST API: https://developer.atlassian.com/jiradev/api-reference/jira-rest-apis
If you wish to retrieve by key please create a new feature request for this in our Atlassian JIRA (https://tempoplugin.jira.com/browse/JTMPO).
I hope this was helpful.
Hi Edward, to access the REST service you have to be an authenticated user with Browse Account permission. So to retrieve the data from 3rd party application you could authenticate your user by using curl from the command line. With the curl you would send the user name and password, the JIRA documentation on REST API (https://developer.atlassian.com/jiradev/api-reference/jira-rest-apis) uses curl in their examples and you could look at that for reference. I hope this helped. Best regards, Anna Vigdís Tempo Team
@Anna Hello Anna! No it did not answer my question. I know what a REST API is and how to authenticate against it. I want to know how to get to the internal ID of an Account which I need to retrieve the details of an Account, without iterating through the whole list of accounts.
