Empty array when listing attachments via Rest api

I want to list the attachments of an issue with the rest api but I get the following error: HTTP Status 405 - Method Not Allowed

My query is very simple: http://myhost/rest/api/2/issue/TEST-123/attachments

What is wrong ? Do you have experience the same problem ?

I found my problem. The field attachment was "Hide" on my project.

You need to give it a valid method - "attachments" is not a valid method.  See https://docs.atlassian.com/jira/REST/latest/ for what is valid.

You are close though.  http://myhost/rest/api/2/issue/TEST-123 should return a load of metadata about the issue including a representation of a list of attachments.

After many checks, the problem seems to be link to the configuration of my project. It works with project XXX but not with project YYY.

Any idea ?
