API to get the translations of priority and other Issue Attributes


Hi everyone,

I'm on Cloud and trying to find a way to get the translation mapping for Issue Priority (and the other issue attributes) through the REST APIs but I can't find anything that can work. I'm configuring the translations through https://<my_cloud_instance>/secure/admin/ViewTranslations!default.jspa?issueConstantType=priority

Capture1.PNGWhen I use translated values like that I receive them when using the "get issue" REST (/rest/api/2/issue/<issue_key>) but I only get the translated value and there is no way for me to get the original value based on this.

{"self":"https://<my_cloud_instance>/rest/api/2/priority/2","iconUrl":"https://<my_cloud_instance>/images/icons/priorities/high.svg","name":"Translated High","id":"2"}


I need it to create a JQL query using the original name because priority = "Translated High" doesn't work, it requires to be priority = "High"


Any ideas will be appreciated.

Did you try the "name" property from /rest/api/latest/field?

Moreover, it has "clauseNames" which is basically the field name options that you can use in JQL query

Hi Alexey,

Thanks for your reply but I don't need the actual name for the property field, I need the translation mapping for the values of the field. In my example I need to know that if I get the priority "Translated High" it corresponds to the original value "High".

If I use the /rest/api/latest/field API all I get is how to use the priority field which I'm already doing and no information about the values or am I missing something?



Oh, sorry.

Is there a reason why you can't use priority ID in the JQL search query? It's the most robust option
