REST API for Server: get list of Sprints

Hi there,

I’m looking at extracting Jira data for reporting, and the API is looking like a promising way to go, but I can’t figure out how to get a list of Sprints, and I can’t even find the words “sprint” (or “backlog” actually) in the documentation at, or in any of the REST responses I’ve seen so far. Could somebody point me to the right place please?



You’ve hit the API for plain JIRA. You need that, but Software has another layer on top, to expose stuff like boards and sprints. See

Fantastic - thank you. Must read instructions :slight_smile:
