Most software developers know JIRA: it is the de facto standard for task management in software development projects. Most interaction with it is via a browser, but Jira provides a integration capabilities via a REST API.

In this webinar we’ll show how you can use ABL and the OpenEdge HTTP client to call into that REST API to query and manipulate data. The webinar covers the basics of the HTTP client, management of HTTPS certificates and running of typical requests against JIRA. These actions include fetching issue lists, details and attachments, as well as updating tickets, all from ABL code.
