  1. Hi Scottizu, I found your tutorials extremely useful for my project. But I still have an issue I was hoping you could answer. I want to get the list of fields in a resolved and closed issue. Any idea how i can get just the list of field names ?

    • Note. The curl calls below were made from the Git Bash command prompt. As such, you will see the urls containing \& to add query parameters to the url. Compare these two urls:
      URL – https://my.jira.com/rest/api/2/issue/createmeta?projectKeys=MYPROJECT&issuetypeIds=1&expand=projects.issuetypes.fields
      Modified URL for Git Bash CURL command – https://my.jira.com/rest/api/2/issue/createmeta?projectKeys=MYPROJECT\&issuetypeIds=1\&expand=projects.issuetypes.fields

      To get the existing fields and values of an issue, you will need the issueID or issueKey. With these, you may make the following calls.

      curl -k https://my.jira.com/rest/api/2/issue/1111111 -u scott:password
      curl -k https://my.jira.com/rest/api/2/issue/MYPROJECT-111 -u scott:password

      curl -k https://${jiraServerDomain}/rest/api/2/issue/${issueID} -u ${username}:${password}
      curl -k https://${jiraServerDomain}/rest/api/2/issue/${issueKey} -u ${username}:${password}

      Search for the “project” key in the response JSON. The value of the “project” key will be a JSON object that has the “key” key. The value of the “key” key is the projectKey.

      …”project”:{“self”:”https://my.jira.com/rest/api/2/project/11111″,”id”:”11111″,”key”:”MYPROJECT”,”name”:”My Project”,…

      Search for the “issueType” key in the response JSON. The value of the “issueType” key will be a JSON object that has the “id” key. The value of the “id” key is the issueTypeID.


      Unfortunately, the fieldID is returned from the query above. This might be something cryptic like “customfield_11111”. Fortunately, the allowedValueID and allowedValueValue is returned.


      In order to find the fieldName associated with the fieldID, you will have to use the projectKey and issueTypeID and run this query.

      curl -k https://my.jira.com/rest/api/2/issue/createmeta?projectKeys=MYPROJECT\&issuetypeIds=1\&expand=projects.issuetypes.fields -u scott:password

      curl -k https://${jiraServerDomain}/rest/api/2/issue/createmeta?projectKeys=${projectKey}\&issuetypeIds=${issueTypeID}\&expand=projects.issuetypes.fields -u ${username}:${password}

      Search for the fieldID and you will have access to the fieldName and an array of allowedValues (which each have an allowedValueID and allowedValueValue).

      …”customfield_1111″:{“required”:false,”schema”:{“type”:”array”,”items”:”string”,”custom”:”com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.customfieldtypes:multiselect”,”customId”:1111},”name”:”My Custom Field Name”,”hasDefaultValue”:false,”operations”:[“add”,”set”,”remove”],”allowedValues”:[{“self”:”https://my.jira.com/rest/api/2/customFieldOption/22222″,”value”:”Working”,”id”:”22222″},{“self”:”https://my.jira.com/rest/api/2/customFieldOption/33333″,”value”:”Not Working”,”id”:”33333″},{“self”:”https://my.jira.com/rest/api/2/customFieldOption/44444″,”value”:”Almost Working”,”id”:”44444″}}]}…

      • Issue issue = Client.getIssueClient().getIssue(“issueKey”).claim();
        String json = new Gson().toJson(issue.getFields());
        JSONArray array = new JSONArray(json);
        ArrayList list = new ArrayList();
        for(int i = 0; i < array.length() ; i++){



        I am currently using this to get the list, but some of the fields do not match with the fields present in the UI. I got what you have mentioned in the post but I am not able to implement the same in java. Any way I can achieve that ?

        Thanks !

      • Issue issue = jiraRestClient.getIssueClient().getIssue(“issueKey”).claim();
        Iterable issueFields = issue.getFields();
        for(IssueField issueField: issueFields) {

        This will print out all the fields.

        Name:A Custom Field
        Value:{“self”:”https:\/\/my.jira.com\/rest\/api\/2\/customFieldOption\/22222″,”value”:”My Value”,”id”:”22222″}

        In the UI, you would probably see “A Custom Field” and “My Value”.
