Today I had to update a zillion licenses of commercial add-ons in different instances. As being a lazy consultant who likes to use a command line instead of the mouse I decided to check if I could use the UPM REST API to extract the information.
Ingredients for this recipe are a computer capable to run unix commands, curl (which is pretty standard on most unix distributions) and jq
#!/bin/bash #### # extractUserAddons.sh <baseurl> <userid> <passwd> # BASEURL=$1 USERID=$2 PASSWD=$3 # # use curl to retrieve all the addons from the UPM on the JIRA # use jq to select only the addons which have properties .userInstalled and .usesLicensing # for each result, access the UPM again to retrieve the license information # and retrieve information using jq # curl -s --user $USERID:$PASSWD $BASEURL/rest/plugins/1.0/ | jq -r '.plugins | map(select(.userInstalled)) | map(select(.usesLicensing)) | . | (.key) ' | while read -r line ; do curl -s --user $USERID:$PASSWD $BASEURL/rest/plugins/1.0/$line-key/license | jq -r '"\(.pluginKey):\(.contactEmail):\(.supportEntitlementNumber):\(.evaluation):\(.maintenanceExpiryDateString)"' done
How to use
1. Create the script or download it here.
2. Execute the script. Note that you need to use an account with administration access
