.NET Standard 1.3 Library to access YouTrack API.

For more information on YouTrack visit jetbrains.com/youtrack.

Getting started

First of all, install YouTrackSharp into your project using a NuGet client.

Install-Package YouTrackSharp

If you want to work with pre-release builds, configure our MyGet feed as a package source.

To communicate with a YouTrack server instance, we'll need a connection. It is recommended to always use permanent tokens to authenticate against YouTrack, using the BearerTokenConnection. For YouTrack instances that do not have token support, UsernamePasswordConnection can be used.

var connection = new BearerTokenConnection("https://ytsharp.myjetbrains.com/youtrack/", "perm:abcdefghijklmn");

// or:

var connection = new UsernamePasswordConnection("https://ytsharp.myjetbrains.com/youtrack/", "username", "password");

Once a connection is made, various services can be used. For example to get a list of projects the user has access to, the ProjectsService can be used:

var projectsService = connection.CreateProjectsService();
var projectsForCurrentUser = await projectsService.GetAccessibleProjects();

Other services are available as well, mapping to the YouTrack REST API endpoints and operations that are available.

Supported operations

YouTrackSharp is a .NET Library to access the YouTrack API. Main features:

  • Targets .NET Standard 1.3 - can be used with pretty much any .NET platform!
  • All calls are async all the way.
  • Handles serialization of YouTrack's timestamps into DateTime where possible.
  • Authentication using permanent tokens. For YouTrack instances that do not have token support, username/password can be used.
  • Comes with a color indices list.

The following API's are currently supported:

Many other API's are not included yet - feel free to tackle one of the UpForGrabs issues and make YouTrackSharp better!

Supported YouTrack versions

YouTrack versions 2017.x and higher as well as YouTrack InCloud are officially supported by this library.

Some features will work with older versions of YouTrack as well but they are not officially suppported. For other YouTrack versions:

Be aware that these older branches are frozen and bug fixes nor new feature development is done on them.
