JIRA REST API response depends on user preferences?


If I use rest api for "get issue" GET /rest/api/2/issue/{issueIdOrKey}. Depends on user prefered language to get issue.status.name or depends on something else? For example: If I have user with prefered language: English. It returns issue.status.name = "In progress". For language czech it return "V reseni".  What I can do to have same return for everyone.

Hi Vickor - Welcome to the community.

As far as I know it does depend on the user's prefered languange preference, as you say.

I could think of one possibilty to force the same language for everyone, but it is not nice: use Set Preference to set their language to whatever you want before making futher calls. Sounds horrible, but might work.

Just to add - You might want also to try asking this over at: https://community.developer.atlassian.com as well (if you haven't already).

There are a lot of helpful and experienced people over there, so you will probably get a quicker response.

You can read more about the Developer Community in this article: https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Feedback-Forum-articles/The-Atlassian-Developer-Community/ba-p/459061

Thank you very much. I think I can deal with by id of status. I hope it will work.

Thanks again
