Get all available value for a "Label" custom field


I want to get all available values for a "label" custom field, but I can not find any endpoint in the rest API which provide what I want, the only thing I found is the endpoint for the system field.

Do you have any idea of how I can do this ?

Thanks in advance for your answers.

Hi @Melanie Geffre,

It all depends what you want to do with the information. If it's just a matter of finding out what values are currently in the system, just add a JQL filter to Jira like this (let's assume the custom field is called Labelfield):

Labelfield is not empty 

Save the filter and add a gadget to a dashboard that groups the search results by Labelfield. With a two dimensional statistics gadget, you can group by both Labelfield and Project, so you even know where they are used.

That should give you a clear view of labels used and potentially even help you clean up.

Hi @Walter Buggenhout _ACA IT_ ,

Thanks for your answer, but I think I haven't been precise enough, I'm developping an app and I need to get the values from the rest API.

I didn't find it in the rest API documentation, but from experience I can say the documentation is not really complete, so I was wondering if there was a way to do so that was not documented.

Hi @Melanie Geffre,

I already had a feeling that you were on such a track. I'm not an API expert, but could this old post get you going? Or this more recent one based on the same principle?

Hi @Walter Buggenhout _ACA IT_ ,

Yes those posts helped me a lot, I did not find them in my previous researches, seems like I did not search enough.

Thanks !
