How to fetch issues for a specific project?#

The 'Get All' operation returns all the issues from Jira. To fetch issues for a particular project, you need to use JQL (Jira Query Language).

For example, if you want to receive all the issues of a project named n8n, follow the steps mentioned below. - Select 'Get All' from the Operation dropdown list. - Toggle Return All to true. - Click on Add Option and select 'JQL'. - Enter project=n8n in the JQL field.

This query will fetch all the issues in the project named n8n. Enter the name of your project instead of n8n to fetch all the issues for your project.

You can refer to the official documentation about JQL to learn more about it.
