You need to generate an access key to use the API for Test Management for Jira. The following steps illustrate the process.

Each user interacting with the API will need a key for that instance of Jira.

  1. On Jira's profile and settings menu, click Test Management for Jira API keys.

  2.  Click Create access key

    A pop-up window appears.

  3. Click the copy button to copy the access key.

    Now you're set to get started with using the REST API!

The URL for API requests is{endpoint}

The authorisation we use is based on JWT (, so you have to use a bearer token. Add the "Authorization" header with the value "Bearer {token}".
