Tags API

The Tag REST API returns several latest tags for the issue.  Tags are sorted in chronological order from newest to oldest.

To perform the Tag API call, the Jira user must have the permission to read the requested issue.







Field Description
issueKey String. Required. Path parameter.

This is the Jira Issue Key – a concatenation of Project key and Issue number. It must contain a dash (‘-‘). The issueKey must be valid and existent.

For example: TST-435.

tagsPerRepository Integer. Required.

This parameter limits the total number of tags returned.

Use values greater than or equal to 1 RECOMMENDED.

Using the zero (0) value will return all tags linked to the issue but this greatly impacts Jira performance NOT RECOMMENDED.




Returns the number of tags according to the parameter value for each repository associated with the issue.

The result contains tag elements with basic information such as name of a tag, associated commit data, associated repository settings, etc.

The additional flag hasMore indicates if an issue contains more tags. Increasing the quantity number for tagsPerRepository will return a large collection result depending on the size of the parameter value  –  in case hasMore has true as response.
