I retrieved all the fields from JIRA through the REST API http://example.com:8080/jira/rest/api/2/field ....
But when i looked at its data type , i am a bit confused ..... The default field "Priority" is of data type List , ie a select list with multiple options , but hen i looked at the JSON for the REST API , it showing that the type is "Priority" ...... Not only this when i create a custom attribute say "Severity" with select list as its data type , i am getting "String" as its data type when i retrieve ..... Any idea on how to retrieve the exact data type ??
The type in the metadata depends on how the field announces itself in the code, and there's no real way to know what type a field really is - if custom field selects say they're a string, that's it, you won't know any more about them
