Slim down a data pull from jira

Hi,

 

Looking to slim down the search query to jira via the solution everyone is currently using.

 

It seems to pull all records and in my case its in the millions.

 

Can I some how isolate and match a search query I would do in Jira ?

 

Is it a matter of me using a differnt URL with the ssearch query in the url ?

 

Currently if I try to change the url with any aditional syntaax, it errors out.

 

thanks.

Hi @svella - Did you find any approach to filter the issues for a particular project or criteria instead of pulling all the issues?

And can you also please provide me the format of the url used please?

 

As part of my project I tried using the url (e.g. - https://jira.companyname.com.au) and I am continuously receiving the following error

 

An error occurred in the ‘FetchPage’ query. DataSource.Error: Web.Contents failed to get contents from

'https://jira.companyname.com.au/rest/api/2/search?maxResults=500&startAt=0' (502): Proxy Error
Details:
DataSourceKind=Web
DataSourcePath=https://jira.companyname.com.au/rest/api/2/search
Url=https://jira.companyname.com.au/rest/api/2/search?maxResults=500&startAt=0

Hi @svella,

 

Could you try the M query below to see if it works in your scenario? Smiley Happy

 

let
    FetchPage = (url as text, pageSize as number, skipRows as number) as table =>
    let
        //Here is where you run the code that will return a single page
        contents = Web.Contents(url&"/rest/api/2/search",[Query = [maxResults= Text.From(pageSize), startAt = Text.From(skipRows)]]),
        json = Json.Document(contents),
        Value = json[issues],
        table = Table.FromList(Value, Splitter.SplitByNothing(), null, null, ExtraValues.Error)
    in
        table meta [skipRows = skipRows + pageSize, total = 500]
in
    FetchPage

In addition, the Content Pack for Jira PBI Desktop is for your reference. Smiley Happy

Hello,

 

Thanks for your response. I am a bit confused. This looks like the same sample I am using from the content pack. 

I am running the full content pack but the minuite I apple the solution, it starts polling the whole jira site and downloading all entires. I am looking for a way to target that seacrh and limit it. For example I have 500 clients with jira tickets, I want to pull just 1 client.

I am guessing its a matter of changing the syntax for the search but not sure how to.

 

Does this make sense ?

 

thanks
