Jira api to Get Issues based on IssueTypes from Project

Hi All,

Please provide me a jira api, which helps in fetching issues from a project based on the issueType.

Example : If a Project1 has two issuetypes "Bug" and "defect" I need an api to get issues of type "Bug"

Bini, Use JIRA rest API. Use the search method and pass the jql.

Hi Renjith,

Thanks!! I could get the necessary issues based on jql. However I did not try REST coz, i believe we need to use external jars in the plugin.

If you can share any info on rest plugin, it would be Great.

Ah, I didn't understand that you are trying to use it from a plugin. Inside the plugin code, REST is not the right one to use. If you are using javascripts delivered in your plugin and doing the data access inside the client, REST is the best.

Inside a plugin use SearchService
