Jira Server Rest API - Adding custom fields to issue screen scheme

Hey All,

We are in the process of creating integrations with multiple Jira systems. Using the Jira Server Rest APIs we can do most things, but, we have run into a roadblock.

When we have a list of custom fields, that we need to add to specific project issues, we are not able to determine what screen ids to add the fields to. There doesn't appear a way to return the screen ids for a specific project and issue. I believe this is available on cloud but not on server?

Is the only way to add fields to specific screens to manually make the updates in each Jira instance?

Screens do not belong to project and issues, so there's no way to return that data from the apis.  You will need to write code that gets the current configuration and works out what screens you want to update from that data plus the data about what you want to configure.
