Connecting Jira REST API as a Data Source Using Basic Authentication

Hi Denodo, I am trying to connect to the Jira REST API as a data source. Could you let me now the best way to retrieve all Issues? What authentication method should I use? I tried using Basic authentication, but it requires a username/password. I have generated an API Token in Jira, but can't find where I can input this. The Jira REST API documentation is located here: for reference.

Hi, In order to connect to Jira you can use a Json Data Source. I was able to connect with the following configuration: * Data Route: HTTP Client. * Base URL: *`https://<your_user>`*. * Authentication: Basic. * Login: <your_email>, used to authenticate on * Password: the token you generated (I got mine from [here]( To retrieve all the issue: * Create a base view over you json data source with GET method and relative URL: *search* (this will return all the issues). * Use a Flatten View to transform the Base View in a tabular format. In particular I would flatten at issues level and delete some field from the output (expand, startat, etc.). Please refer to [JSON Sources]( and also [HTTP Path]( of the VDP user guide. Hope this helps
