I am trying to create a script that needs to process an xml output from a JQL search request.

I am having issues just reading the url, and is very likely due to permissions, but can't seem to find a way to make it work.

I am trying a simple script to test:


String xml_url = 'http://jira.my-company.com:8080/sr/jira.issueviews:searchrequest-xml/temp/SearchRequest.xml?jqlQuery=project+%3D+T500+AND+issuetype+%3D+Task'

return xml_url.toURL().text

but get a 400 error:

2018-01-23 17:25:36,400 WARN [common.UserScriptEndpoint]: Script console script failed: java.io.IOException: Server returned HTTP response code: 400 for URL: http://jira.my-company.com:8080/sr/jira.issueviews:searchrequest-xml/temp/SearchRequest.xml?jqlQuery=project+%3D+T500+AND+issuetype+%3D+Task at Script360.run(Script360.groovy:5)

 

I have trying passing the &?os_authType=basic and even &?os_username=un&?os_password=pwd (which I agree is not a good idea), and still same error.

If I use a non authenticated url, i.e. 'http://www.google.com', it works.

Does anyone know a reasonable way to access and read XML output from a JQL request using scripts in JIRA? 

Thanks!

It's more a question than an Answer, 

But is there a reason you want your search to return an XML.

When I use Script to do an Issue search, I usually prefer to get a collection of IssueObjects

This way you don't have to deal with an unofficial way to get your issues.

Like something like this : 

import com.atlassian.jira.bc.issue.search.SearchService
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.user.ApplicationUser
import com.atlassian.jira.web.bean.PagerFilter

public static List JqlSearch(String jqlString) {
try {
SearchService searchService = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(SearchService.class)
ApplicationUser user = ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getLoggedInUser()
SearchService.ParseResult parseResult = searchService.parseQuery(user, jqlString)
if (parseResult.isValid()) {
def result = searchService.search(user, parseResult.getQuery(), PagerFilter.getUnlimitedFilter()).getIssues()
return result
} else {
return null
}
}
catch (Exception e) {
}
}

 

Another solution would be to go through the Real REST API, and then convert the JSON result into XML

Like in this example

Thanks for your input. 

To answer your question, I am using XSLT processing to create output from XML, so I did not want to necessarily add another step to go from JSON to XML.
