Extract default values of a JIRA field (eg. Status field) through JQL

Hi Team,

We have been using JIRA of which we had admin and DB access rights.

Now we are moving to use Oracle Corp JIRA where we will not be having admin or DB access rights.

The issue is we want to find out all the possible values (LOV) under a JIRA field

for example values for STATUS field, Resolution Field etc.

Earlier we could fire a DB query in backend and extract the details which is not permitted in the Oracle Corp JIRA.

Looking a way to find the list of values for a field through JQL or by any other means.

P.S: We do not admin rights or DB access rights or REST APIs

JQL is for finding issues, and it's built for that - if you were to try to replicate a JQL query in SQL, you could easily end up with SQL queries with 40+ joins in them.  It's not SQL, and does not have the same capabilities.

The ways to see the lists of options are

  • As an admin, look at the config
  • As a human user, log in and use a screen that allows for editing the values, and look at the lists
  • As a computer user, log in over REST and look at the editable values
