i am looking for a jenkins API that will provide me the job names along with job status(active/disabled)
API: export getAllItems() to be accessed from the RestAPI
Jenkins ROOT API allows doing it AFAIK.
See query examples here, for example: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/25687925/jenkins-api-get-a-list-of-jobs-filtered-by-build-parameter-what-jobs-have-bui
But it will not work easily if you have folders. For such case there is JENKINS-39774 created by Victor Martinez
