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 ??
