API Documentation

The JIRA API docs are available online. They are most useful for:

  • users writing Plugins, Listeners and Services
  • users with commercial licenses who wish to modify JIRA
  • partners embedding JIRA as a J2EE component

Where can I find the API documentation?

  • Information about each of the remote APIs (REST, XML-RPC, JSON-RPC) can be found here: JIRA Remote API Reference.
  • Please note, the API documentation is not available for download.

Learning more

If you haven't developed for JIRA before, read our Getting started guide to learn about the JIRA APIs, add-on frameworks, and more. After that, you can check out our other development resources.

Keeping track of JIRA changes

We provide regular updates for developer-related changes in every JIRA release. Check out the latest updates page to read about changes to the JIRA APIs, plugin points, component upgrades, and more.
