Using Greenhopper API in Jira Software 7.3.x

There are some functionnalities from Greenhopper I need to use in my plugin. I founs some documentation for it (this one for example)


However, this seems to be for JIRA 6. I was able to but the Greenhopper dependency 7.1.22 in my pom.xml and seem to be able to use the api, but I wonder if I'll have issues later, or if this is even supporter. Isn't Greenhopper supposed to be integrated to JIRA Software now? I didn't find any of the Greenhopper classes in the JIRA API documentation.


What should I use if I want to that that API?

Hi Mathieu,

there's another community for developer's issues:
Maybe you get an answer there sooner

Just to clarify something in your question - there is no "integration" or "dependency inclusion". 

JIRA Software *is* Greenhopper.  GH was the first version of it, it got renamed to JIRA Agile after Atlassian acquired it, and then renamed again to JIRA Software as it was turned into an application. 

You should not include any GH dependencies or integrations.  Use the JIRA Software ones, they're the same thing.

Nic, thank you for that clarification. As for JIRA Software, many of the Greenhopper API seem to be missing (maybe they were removed). Do you ave any idea as to how to use the WorkingDaysService (or something similar) from the JIRA Software API?

The Greenhopper API has been heavily reworked and had swathes deprecated as it evolved into JIRA Software.

I haven't tried to code anything with WorkingDaysService, I'd head over to the developer community to ask there.
