How do I display all issue fields in the Python Jira API?

For anyone here who has used Jira-Python, if I'm using vim to edit my code, how do I display all issue fields for my project? 


Here is the link of the doc

I would go this way:

project_keys = ['Zen']
issuetype_names = ['Task']
meta = jira_instance.createmeta(projectKeys=project_keys,

for x in meta:

Basically gives you all info, datatypes, options etc. attached to the individual fields in the corresponding project/issuetype. This also gives you the field name to the customfield_123456 fields, translations etc.

You can use 


to get all the results obtained in the JSON object as raw string. Its not as pleasant to view, but will provide you with what you're looking for.  Take a look at this stackoverflow solution  and see if you find your answer, cheers.

I made a web application using plotly/dash on Python to make an interactive Jira work log dashboard. Users who are viewing the answer to this question might find something valuable there.  You can visit this GitHub repository.

Were you able to do this? Trying the same thing and having a fairly hard time.
