How to get Custom field options in Jira Server. Edited


Needing to get the options for custom fields in Jira Server. I am able to get a list of the custom fields and a single value for a custom field.

However, am not able to get the list of options for a custom field (customfieldID_XXXX).

I have trawled everywhere and cannot find a solution.

Any suggestions would be of great help.

Hi @Tim Benton  Are you trying to get Field values/list of options using REST API ?


Hi, the REST API

This is not possible with REST API.  There is no call for this. For the customFieldOption call you have to know the id, but it is at all returned when querying an issue.

Try this workaround :-

Thanks. Is there anyway other direct way to access the fields? 

If you have jira admin permission , you can go to custom fields and check values of that custom field. 
otherwise you can see available values while creating an issue.

Hello @Tim Benton 

How are you trying to get this information? Are you trying to get it with the API or the UI?
