The JIRA Cloud driver covers 82 tables and 1536 columns.

JIRA Cloud API Clients

Invantive UniversalSQL is available on many user interfaces ("clients" in traditional server-client paradigma). All Invantive UniversalSQL statements can be exchanged with a close to 100% compatibility across all clients and operating systems (Windows, MacOS, Linux, iOS, Android).

The clients include Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Power BI, Microsoft Power Query, Microsoft Word and Microsoft Outlook. Web-based clients include Invantive Cloud, Invantive Bridge Online as OData proxy, Invantive App Online for interactive apps, Online SQL Editor for query execution and Invantive Data Access Point as extended proxy.

The <link displaytype="text" defaultstyle="true" type="weblink" href="" target="_blank" styleclass="Normal" translate="true">JIRA Cloud Power BI connector</link> is based on the Invantive UniversalSQL driver for JIRA Cloud, completed by a high-performance OData connector which works straight on Power BI without any add-on. The OData protocol is always version 4, independent whether the backing platform uses OData, SOAP or another protocol.

For technical users there are command-line editions of Invantive Data Hub running on iOS, Android, Windows, MacOS and Linux. Invantive Data Hub is also often used for enterprise server applications such as ETL. High-volume replication of data taken from the JIRA Cloud API into traditional databases such as SQL Server (on-premises and Azure), MySQL, PostgreSQL and Oracle is possible using <link displaytype="text" defaultstyle="true" type="weblink" href="" target="_blank" styleclass="Normal" translate="true">Invantive Data Replicator</link>. Invantive Data Replicator automatically creates and maintains JIRA Cloud datawarehouses, possibly in combination with data from over 75 other (cloud) platforms. Invantive Data Replicator supports data volumes up to over 1 TB and over 5.000 companies. The on-premise edition of Invantive Bridge offers an JIRA Cloud provider.

Finally, online web apps can be build for JIRA Cloud using App Online of <link displaytype="text" defaultstyle="true" type="weblink" href="" target="_blank" styleclass="Normal" translate="true">Invantive Cloud</link>.

Monitor API Calls

When a query or DML-statement has been executed on Invantive UniversalSQL a developer can evaluate the actual calls made to the JIRA Cloud API using a query on sessionios@DataDictionary. As an alternative, extensive request and response logging can be enabled by setting log-native-calls-to-disk to true. In the %USERPROFILE%\Invantive\NativeLog folder Invantive UniversalSQL will create log files per JIRA Cloud API request and response.


The SQL driver for JIRA Cloud does not support partitioning. Define one data container in a database for each company in JIRA Cloud to enable parallel access for data from multiple companies.

The configuration can be changed using various attributes during log on and use. A full list of configuration options is listed in the driver attributes.
