Jira Cloud API - Getting Issue Types returns null

I'm using the Jira Cloud OpenAPI v2 that I generated using openapi-generator-cli. I followed this guide here:

My program is able to connect to my test instance of Jira Cloud and return the test project, however upon calling the issue types (project.getIssueTypes()) it returns "null" and I'm a bit confused why this is happening. Here is the snippet of my code:


Naturally the first thought might be, that there aren't any issue types in the project at all. However I selected the scrum template and even inserted a dummy issue type.


How come, my REST client can't return those issue types at all? From the debug variables, you can clearly see, that my client is able to find the project. I'm also using the REST API v2, which is the stable version. I was also confused, why the parameters of  the method "searchProjects" varied in the link above in the example from my code.

I found that you need to then get the project, and set expand to be "issues".


ApiClient apiClient = new ApiClient();

ProjectsApi projectsApi = new ProjectsApi(apiClient);

ProjectIdentifiers identifiers = projectsApi.createProject(projectInputBean);

Project project = projectsApi.getProject(projectIdentifiers.getId().toString(), "issues", null);

Thank you, that helped!
