In the past I mentioned that I use the JIRA::Client Perl module quite frequently. This module is based on JIRA’s SOAP API.
Recently it came to my attention that Atlassian deprecated their SOAP API in JIRA 6.0 and will be removing it altogether in JIRA 7.0 (see here). Anyone who is still using the SOAP API is encouraged to migrate to the REST API.
Specifically for the JIRA::Client module, an alternate module, JIRA::REST, is now available, providing similar functionality.
So if you’re using any SOAP-based access to JIRA, it’s time to move on…
