Get List of Epic Links - REST API

I am developing a board and mobile app for our corporate managers, and have hit a snag at about 85% completion.

I am unable to get the list of epic links from our Jira Agile. The rest API returns all the allowedValues for any other type of list-type field, but for the epic-link field, there is no such property.

Here is the output from a rest request to:

"customfield_10008": {
              "required": false,
              "schema": {
                "type": "array",
                "items": "string",
                "custom": "com.pyxis.greenhopper.jira:gh-epic-link",
                "customId": 10008
              "name": "Epic Link",
              "hasDefaultValue": false,
              "operations": [

As you can see, there is no allowedValues property, but there is a large number of epics.

Is there any API for Jira Agile, or can I access this list elsewhere?
