Web Services for JIRA


We are using jira for developers. Now I have 10 clients who wants to know updates I dont want to give them rights to access developers JIRA directly .. I have one application running for clients in PHP is there any way that I can get data from JIRA through webservices and feed in to that application so that they can see how many tasks are completed and whats d status of their projects.

Please let me know.. Thanks.

Jira has some ways of accessing his data by the API here :


Rest is prefered since other are Deprecated

You could allow "anyone" access (read only of course) access to the project(s) they need to see. No user licences used, they can't do anything, but they'll be able to see it all.

That will also allow your other application access without needing a proxy user to fetch via REST. If you don't do that, it's going to have to pretend to be a human to get access.

I just want to get my issues from JIRA to get added same time when it add in JIRA to CLIENT APPLICATION on another server..

I need webservices for that if any ? and same thing can be done reverse too ?

Jobin's link is to the API that a remote application should use. It contains information on getting data from Jira as well as posting it there by external applications. You'll need to do some coding, and as I mentioned, have a user id in Jira to read/write the Jira data with.
