The Flower REST API enables you to interact with Flower programmatically. Use this API to build integrations with Flower. This page documents the REST resources available in Flower, including the HTTP response codes and example requests and responses.
This documentation is for version 1 of the Flower REST API, which is the latest version but is in beta and experimental.
Authentication and authorization
The Flower REST API is protected by the same restrictions that apply for the standard Jira REST API, which means you can use the same credentials as for your Jira Basic Auth connection. See Basic auth for REST APIs for details.
Get an API token
Basic auth requires API tokens. You generate an API token for your Atlassian account and use it to authenticate anywhere where you would have used a password. This enhances security because:
- you're not saving your primary account password outside of where you authenticate
- you can quickly revoke individual API tokens on a per-use basis
- API tokens will allow you to authenticate even if your Atlassian Cloud organization has two-factor authentication or SAML enabled.
Automate complex Business Processes and Workflows with Simplicity
Mapping single Jira workflows won't necessarily go far enough. Flower Workflow Automation adds the strategic layer to your business process management.
Unlock the full power of Jira by aligning and streamlining your BPMN processes and workflows directly with your team: Every business process turns into an automated workflow by creating a Jira issue for each business process activity.
