The Atlassian JIRA REST API handles basic HTTP requests with responses in JSON. Use the Atlassian Confluence API to access Confluence's collaboration and project management functions like: file sharing, calendars, unique workspaces for each project, discussion boards, and more. Confluence also easily interfaces with Atlassian's project and issue tracking application, JIRA. See Atlassian's extensive documentation for code examples and information on implementing the Confluence API and other reference materials.
The modern work environment is filled with an overwhelming number of tools and applications, but with no easy way for employees to connect and share their ideas with the rest of the company. Here we look at how APIs can help companies make it easier for coworkers to find content and collaborate.
Atlassian has updated the Confluence and Jira Cloud APIs to comply with Europe's GDPR privacy regulations. The company will officially retire older APIs towards the end of March 2019. For now, the Bitbucket Cloud API has not been updated but the company will make GDPR-related changes to it soon.
