Hello @Yellalingh Margonda ,

Thanks for reaching out and looking at this one it is a little confusing as the value formats for "fieldid" in the calls of the "field" endpoint compared to the call for the "customfield" endpoint are different and a little counterintuitive.

For obtaining the context id noted in the endpoint "GET /rest/api/3/field/{fieldId}/contexts"   you need to input the "fieldid" variable in the format "customfield_id" to differentiate between a system field (id only) vs custom fields (custom field + id)

An example of a custom field with ID = 10273 in my test instance would be as follows:

GET /rest/api/3/field/customfield_10273/contexts

the results come back as follows noting the context is "10420":

"maxResults": 20,
"startAt": 0,
"total": 1,
"isLast": true,
"values": [
"id": 10420,
"name": "Default Configuration Scheme for AAA_TEST_ elect List (single choice)",
"description": "Default configuration scheme generated by Jira",
"associatedIssueTypes": [
"self": "https://<BASE_URL>",
"id": "10108",
"description": "Track underlying causes of incidents. Created by Jira Service Desk.",
"iconUrl": "https://<BASE_URL>",
"name": "Problem",
"subtask": false,
"avatarId": 10604
"associatedProjects": [],
"isAllProjects": true,
"isAllIssueTypes": false

Then in the secondary call "GET /rest/api/3/customField/{fieldId}/context/{contextId}/option"  as you are already doing a call against the custom field endpoint so there are not any standard fields as valid inputs so  the format for "fieldid" is going to only be formatted as the number as follows:

GET /rest/api/3/customField/10273/context/10420/option

And in my example would return as follows:

"maxResults": 100,
"startAt": 0,
"total": 8,
"isLast": true,
"values": [
"id": "10529",
"value": "1",
"disabled": false
"id": "10530",
"value": "2",
"disabled": false
"id": "10531",
"value": "3",
"disabled": false
"id": "10532",
"value": "4",
"disabled": false
"id": "10533",
"value": "5",
"disabled": false
"id": "10534",
"value": "6",
"disabled": false
"id": "10535",
"value": "7",
"disabled": false
"id": "10536",
"value": "8",
"disabled": false

Hope this helps, and let me know if you have any additional questions.
