Which REST API page to use for creating an issue and check if a sprint is open or closed


I am using Jira Cloud and I want to use REST APIs to do the following activities:
1 check the status of sprints which are open or closed?
2. Create an issue

I can see two different pages and puts me in confusion that which page should I use?

https://developer.atlassian.com/cloud/jira/platform/rest/v3/ ?
https://developer.atlassian.com/cloud/jira/software/rest/ ?


Hello @Keshav

Jira SOFTWARE is separate to Jira PLATFORM, so they have separate REST APIs.

At the top of the Jira Software Cloud REST API documentation page it explains just that, where it says:

“Jira Software is built on the Jira platform. As such, there is an overlap in functionality between what is provided by Jira Software and what is provided by the Jira platform.”
