Getting all JIRA Issue Types using Java

Let’s see how to fetch all available issues from JIRA in JAVA using the REST API library provided by Atlassian.

To know about the required Maven dependencies and how to generate the trust store file used in the code below, you can refer to How to work with Atlassian JIRA API using Java.

The full code is provided below to get Name and Id of all available issue types.

import com.atlassian.jira.rest.client.api.JiraRestClient;
import com.atlassian.jira.rest.client.api.domain.IssueType;
import com.atlassian.jira.rest.client.auth.BasicHttpAuthenticationHandler;
import com.atlassian.jira.rest.client.internal.async.AsynchronousJiraRestClientFactory;
import com.google.common.collect.Lists;

import java.net.URI;
import java.util.ArrayList;

/**
 * Get all issue details
 */
public class Tutorial01 {
    public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
        System.setProperty("javax.net.ssl.trustStore", "C:/myTrustStore");

        // Your JIRA URL
        URI jiraServerUri = URI.create("https://localhost:4448/");

        AsynchronousJiraRestClientFactory factory = new AsynchronousJiraRestClientFactory();

        JiraRestClient restClient = factory.create(jiraServerUri, new BasicHttpAuthenticationHandler("username", "password"));

        try {
            ArrayList<IssueType> issueTypes = Lists.newArrayList(restClient.getMetadataClient().getIssueTypes().claim());

            for ( IssueType issue : issueTypes){
                System.out.println("Issue Name : " + issue.getName() + " , Issue ID : " + issue.getId());
            }

        } finally {
            restClient.close();
        }

    }

}

For the provided code you will get all the issue names and it’s internal ID in the console output. Some sample is provided below for your understanding.

Issue Name : Task , Issue ID : 3
Issue Name : Sub-task , Issue ID : 5
Issue Name : Defect , Issue ID : 78
