Issue Tracking System Instance API

Issue Tracking Systems can be accessed and modified through this API using four services: GET, POST, PUT, and PATCH. These four services allow for the retrieval, creation, complete update, and partial update of Issue Tracking Systems. You can find more information about the REST API functions on the /wiki/spaces/FLEX/pages/392986625page.

GET

There are two implementations of GET. One will find an Issue Tracking System with the given Id and return the JSON representation of the Issue Tracking System. The other will find a list of Issue Tracking Systems matching the parameters supplied to it.

GET by ID

This GET service will find an Issue Tracking System with the given Id and return the JSON representation of the object.

 GET by ID Example

Example

If we had an Issue Tracking System in our database with an Id of 11101 with the following attributes

Issue Tracking System - 11101
{
	"instanceId": 11101,
	"instanceCode": "ITS",
	"instanceName": "ITS Name",
	"issueTrackingSystemId": 1,
	"description": "ITS example",
	"isActive": true,
	"properties":
	[
		{
			"propertyName": "JIRA_PASSWORD",
			"propertyValue": "*****"
		},
		{
			"propertyName": "JIRA_PORT",
			"propertyValue": "1234"
		},
		{
			"propertyName": "JIRA_TICKET_REST_PATTERN",
			"propertyValue": "/rest/api/2/issue/{JIRA_ISSUE}"
		},
		{
			"propertyName": "JIRA_TICKET_URL_PATTERN",
			"propertyValue": "/browse/{JIRA_ISSUE}"
		},
		{
			"propertyName": "JIRA_URL",
			"propertyValue": "http://myjira.atlassian.net"
		},
		{
			"propertyName": "JIRA_USER_NAME",
			"propertyValue": "username"
		}
	]
}

When we run a GET request at the following URL

http://host:port/flexdeploy/rest/v1/topology/integrations/itsinstance/11101

The GET request would return the following JSON Issue Tracking System object

Issue Tracking System - 11101
{
	"instanceId": 11101,
	"instanceCode": "ITS",
	"instanceName": "ITS Name",
	"issueTrackingSystemId": 1,
	"description": "ITS example",
	"isActive": true,
	"properties":
	[
		{
			"propertyName": "JIRA_PASSWORD",
			"propertyValue": "*****"
		},
		{
			"propertyName": "JIRA_PORT",
			"propertyValue": "1234"
		},
		{
			"propertyName": "JIRA_TICKET_REST_PATTERN",
			"propertyValue": "/rest/api/2/issue/{JIRA_ISSUE}"
		},
		{
			"propertyName": "JIRA_TICKET_URL_PATTERN",
			"propertyValue": "/browse/{JIRA_ISSUE}"
		},
		{

			"propertyValue": "http://myjira.atlassian.net"
		},
		{
			"propertyName": "JIRA_USER_NAME",
			"propertyValue": "username"
		}
	]
}

GET by Query Parameters

This GET service will return a list of Issue Tracking Systems in the form of JSON objects based on the query parameters code, name, and issue tracking system type. Issue Tracking Systems are only returned if they match ALL of the specified query parameters. If no query parameters are given this request will return the entire list of Issue Tracking Systems.

API URL

http://host:port/flexdeploy/rest/v1/topology/integrations/itsinstance?

Append the following character sequences to the above URL to specify Query parameters.
Use '&' between successive query parameters: 

instanceCode={instanceCode}

instanceName={instanceName}

itsName={itsName}

Examples:
To specify the code parameter only:

http://host:port/flexdeploy/rest/v1/topology/integrations/itsinstance?instanceCode={instanceCode}

To specify the code and name parameters:

http://host:port/flexdeploy/rest/v1/topology/integrations/itsinstance?instanceCode={instanceCode}&instanceName={instanceName}

To specify the issue tracking system name only:

http://host:port/flexdeploy/rest/v1/topology/integrations/itsinstance?itsName={itsName}

The query parameters are not case sensitive. Searching by instanceName=NAME is the same as searching by instanceName=name.

Example

If we had an issue tracking system in our database with an Id of 11223 and had the following attributes

Issue Tracking System - 11223
{
	"instanceId": 11223,
	"instanceCode": "ITS",
	"instanceName": "ITS Name",
	"issueTrackingSystemId": 1,
	"description": "ITS example",
	"isActive": false,

			"propertyValue": "http://myjira.atlassian.net"
		},

			"propertyValue": "username"
		}
	]
}

When we run a PUT request at the following URL

http://host:port/flexdeploy/rest/v1/topology/integrations/itsinstance/11223

And the PUT request receives the following JSON issue tracking system object,

Issue Tracking System - 11223
{
	"instanceId": 1,
	"instanceCode": "NEWITS",
	"instanceName": "New Name",
	"issueTrackingSystemId": 1,
	"description": "PUT example",

			"propertyValue": "http://myjira.atlassian.net"
		},
		{
			"propertyName": "JIRA_USER_NAME",
			"propertyValue": "username"

	]
}

The PUT request would then update the Issue Tracking System with Id 11223 and return the  following JSON Issue Tracking System object.

Issue Tracking System - 11223
{
	"instanceId": 11223,
	"instanceCode": "NEWITS",
