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?

Other resources

We also recommend that you refer to the developer resources available via this page: Development Resources.

Each of the "Preparing for..." pages provide helpful information for each JIRA version, such as change reports like this one: JIRA stable (Java) API changes for 6.0 (Clirr report).
