CustomField not found using REST API

Dirk February 28, 2024

Good day 

I keep getting in my response 'The custom field was not found'

Not sure what I am missing?

And yes I did check and made sure the custom field is in Jira and that the ID matches 



const res = await axios.get(`${jiraBaseUrl}/field/${customFieldId}/context`, {

headers: {

Authorization: `Basic ${auth}`,

Accept: "application/json",



I do have a request that fetches my ticket, and that works 100%, it is just this endpoint giving me issues for some reason

Solved the issue, the CustomFieldId should be `customfield_ID` and not just the id, which is subtracted from `customfield_ID`, wish the documentation could be clear on that :) 


const response = await api.asUser().requestJira(route`/rest/api/3/field/{fieldId}/context`,
: { 'Accept': 'application/json' }

Welcome to the community @Dirk !

Have you tried using this endpoint: /rest/api/3/field/{fieldId}/context?

Hi @Perisic Nikola , 

Jip that is the endpoint I am using, the `jiraBaseUrl` is just a variable I am using
