Fields not available thru API

I am using Google Scripts to try and read worklog entries.  I can get to most of the issues fields but get an undefined error when I try to access worklog related fields.  I have time tracking turned on and I have the permissions for time entry set.  What am I doing wrong?


var fetchArgs = {
contentType: "application/json",
headers: {"Authorization":"Basic "+encCred},
muteHttpExceptions : true

var jql = "?jql= issuetype=task order by created DESC";

Logger.log("jql = " + jql);
var httpResponse = UrlFetchApp.fetch(baseURL + jql, fetchArgs);
Logger.log("httpResponse = " + httpResponse);

if (httpResponse) {

var rspns = httpResponse.getResponseCode();
case 200:
var data = JSON.parse(httpResponse.getContentText());
var issuessss = [];

for(var id in data["issues"])

// Check the data is valid and the Jira fields exist
if(data["issues"][id] && data["issues"][id].fields) {

var status = data["issues"][id].fields.timespent;
Logger.log("timeSpent = " + timeSpent);
var worklogdate = data["issues"][id].fields.worklogdate;
Logger.log("worklogdate = " + worklogdate);

var type = data["issues"][id];
var reporter = data["issues"][id].fields.reporter.displayName;
var summary = data["issues"][id].fields.summary;
Logger.log("type = " + type + "-" + reporter + " " + summary);

issuessss.push([type,reporter,summary]);// adding each issue data to 2D array

Hi @Sigmund VanDamme  -- Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

One way to check the names of the fields, and what is supported, is to make a call to the REST API and then parse the JSON to see what is there.  So pick a Jira issue you know has the data you want and use that issue.

Here is the how-to for that method:
