How can I use the Jira Cloud API to access a Test Case's custom fields?

My company is using Jira to keep track of test scripts, among other things.  I can use the Jira API to extract some information about the Test Case records in Python Code.  However, I can't find anything in the API docs to help me extract data from custom fields.

(Specifically: my tests have a custom field called Automation Path, containing a path and filename.  This shows up in Jira's Web app under "More Information".  I can access other fields of the test using GET /testcases, as documented in the V2 API docs here:  But I can't find a way to retrieve custom fields.)

I know this is possible, because the Jira Web app does it, and displays the information I need.  How can I do this?

Many thanks,

I would also appreciate an answer for this topic. Nothing is referenced in the API

Hey Daniel. Have you maybe got any solution for you question? I'm facing the same problem, that I would like to get access to some custom fields in Jira/Adaptavist, but can not find a way for that. 
Would appreciate if you could share your solution if you have any. Regards.
