How can I query using the API a CustomField for a particular issue?


I have tried multiple ways of trying to retrieve the details for a custom field using the API but I cannot find the right combination of parameters.

Now I am mostly using:


curl -D- -u username:password -X GET ""

But I am not issue if "issue" is the right now ?


Any tips/clues?

I have tried many permutations and nothing seems to work work.
