Why /rest/greenhopper/1.0/sprint/{sprintId} should use PUT?

we are try to using the REST API to get some information from our system.

i found the document for REST API of greenhopper from here


but when i want to use /rest/greenhopper/1.0/sprint/{sprintId} to get the sprint information, i found out that it requires PUT to get the information.

Why we use PUT here instead of GET, if i want to get the sprint information (like, start-date, end-date), is there any other option i have?

Hi Jonny,

You can also find GreenHopper API documenation on Atlassian Developers.

You can use GET on /sprints/{rapidViewId} to get the current state of a sprint and the list of sprints that have been started and completed in the past.

At present the Sprints in planning do not have start and end dates assocaiated with them until the sprint has been started (ie, when they are in the backlog they are just markers). We are looking to change this behaviour in the future to better accommodate your API request.

Thank you Jonny.
