This is counter-intuitive I think and not explained well in the docs, but Issues are not the same thing as Requests.

A request is a wrapper around an issue, for the benefit of the customers - customers only see requests, but Agents get to see both the request and the issue behind it.

These two artifacts both have workflow elements.  The workflow for the issue is what you have given us a screenshot of.  The issue will be moved through that workflow by the agent.

But your REST call is trying to fetch the transitions for the request.  These are not the transitions in the issue workflow directly.  They are transitions that your admins have made available to the customer, which then transition the issue as well.  In this case, I suspect you have not made any transitions available to the customer on their requests, so the call to get transitions is returning empty.

Either you'll want to map some transitions for the customer requests, or, if you really do want to work with the issue transitions, use the Jira (Core) api for it - /rest/api/3/issue/{issueIdOrKey}/transitions
