Hello guys. I eventually found out the answer. I'm using , in fact, Jira Java Rest Client and i retrieve now all the fields linked to an issue type using the code below:

GetCreateIssueMetadataOptions  options = new GetCreateIssueMetadataOptionsBuilder()
         List myList=(List) restClient.getIssueClient().getCreateIssueMetadata(options, pm); // getting the issue creation metadata relatively to the project im searching for
        java.util.Iterator<CimProject> it1=myList.iterator();
        		List issueT=(List) c.getIssueTypes(); // getting the list of issue types linked to this project
        		java.util.Iterator<CimIssueType> it2=issueT.iterator();
            	while (it2.hasNext())
            		Map<String, CimFieldInfo> fieldList=issueType.getFields(); // getting the list of fields linked to each issue type 
            		for(Entry<String, CimFieldInfo> entry : fieldList.entrySet()) {
            		    String cle = entry.getKey();
            		    CimFieldInfo valeur = entry.getValue();


Hope i could help someone who's searching for the same thing and thank you all for your help.

Hi Hamza,

I guess you can try to use REST API below to get the available fields:


Hope its helps.

Thanks, John

Hi John, thanks for your answer. can you just tell me how to use such querie in a java project for example?

The method is what John suggested. The above post only says how you can use Jersey to access methods from Java. You need to combine both.

No it actually didn't help. currently i can access issues usig jira java rest client. But my purpose is to have the list of the fields present in a screen that i did define. Im still strugling to find a method to do so.

Ok I'll try it and give you a feedback ASAP. Thanks to both of you .

I am looking exactly for such a code. I tried using above snippet but didnt work. any suggestions?
