Can I extract data related to a Portfolio Plan using APIs?
Data that I would like to read includes:
I believe the best place to get updates on the topic would be the following issue suggestions:
You can consider explaining your requirements and use case in those issues to help the teams better understand your use case.
So what use cases is this API trying to solve? It see no valid use for it. Why would I want to just see info about a plan?
What we need is a way to
1. List initiatives
2. Know what initiative an epic is set to
Am I missing something?
Hi @Dave Hock,
This API is here to expose some of the data that is Portfolio specific and wouldn't be accessible otherwise.
For data like issues, even when it comes to Portfolio field, I'd suggest having a look at the Jira search API: https://developer.atlassian.com/server/jira/platform/jira-rest-api-examples/#searching-for-issues-examples
The actions you mentioned are both possible via JQL, so the Jira Search API should work for this. I understand the Portfolio documentation for devs is not clear enough on this and I will share that feedback with our team.
is there a plan that Portfolio will get its own REST API?
Otherwise it is hard to integrate it. In big enterprises a lot of things are automatized.
We already do this kind of things in JIRA, so starting with Portfolio and doing everything manual would send us back to the stone age.
We, too, use the REST API JIRA provides. This would be a fantastic addition. It would be good just to get a roadmap for when such a thing might exist -- assuming this work is in a JIRA Portfolio and it's been scheduled out. :-) (assuming Atlassian is using Portfolio to manage Portfolio).
There's no official, supported API at this point. Since all communication between the Portfolio frontend and backend is REST based, the only option would be to investigate the current REST calls and use the same in a custom application. That said, such an integration could break with every release of JIRA Portfolio as we don't ensure version compatibility until we officially publish an API.
Any update on this topic Martin? It would really help us if we could eliminate some HR Manual labor by integrating our ADP time off requests with Portfolio availability and having this API would really help to accomplish that.
So, is there a feature wish-list item for this, please? We have many needs for this, e.g.
We need to READ the 'End Date' value to update our ERP system for customer communication
We need to WRITE new Epics and/or Stories based on new Quote or Sales Order items generated in ERP
@Martin Suntinger is there anything on the roadmap about a REST api?
Based on the comment below, is how we would like to use Planner and Portfolio. The issue is, that Portfolio doesn't keep the work in sycn but more annoying is the duplicate defining of teams, holidays, etc.
The wait is over... Portfolio for Jira Server and Data Center 3.0 is now officially here! Platform releases offer Atlassian an opportunity to shift our strategy, make bold predictions about t...
