Clerk API

You can use Clerk REST API to make a custom integration with any system. This API provides a full feature set that you can see in Clerk apps.

Currently, we provide Clerk API access in manual mode. If you want to use the API, please contact us and we will issue a static authorization token for you.

Since this is the same API that is used by the Clerk apps in Jira, you can use your browser’s web tools to inspect API calls that you are interested in.


After you get a static authorization token, you need to put it in every API request in the Authorization header in the following format:

Authorization: JWT {your_token}

Note, that you need to prepend the token with ‘JWT’ and one space.

We can also rotate the token per your request.


The API root URL depends on the Clerk app you need:
