YouTrack InCloud 2019.2 Help

REST API

YouTrack REST API lets you perform programmatically various actions in the tracker:

  • Importing issues from your current bug tracking system — for smoother migration to YouTrack.

  • Creating, modifying, and performing other operations programmatically — so you can seamlessly integrate YouTrack into your environment. For example, via automated issue submission from third-party applications.

  • Manipulating projects, users, groups, roles, issue link types, and custom attributes.

General Notes

The REST API returns and consumes data in JSON format. Regular content negotiation rules apply:

  • Use the Accept HTTP request header to indicate the expected response data format: application/json

  • Use the Content-Type HTTP request header for POST and PUT requests: application/json

The REST API is always enabled. However, an administrator can specify which sites (origins) are allowed to access YouTrack via REST. For more information, see Resource Sharing.
