How do I find options available for a field?

Is it possible to find the options available for a field?  It seems like this should work:{fieldKey}/option-getAllOptions


But it doesn't seem to . . .

Hi Guy,

You can try the JQL autocomplete REST end point using the name of the field. 



Thanks!  This would be good if it returned the IDs for the fields . . .

$ curl -s | jq '.'
  "results": [
      "displayName": "High",
      "value": "High"
      "displayName": "Low",
      "value": "Low"
      "displayName": "Medium",
      "value": "Medium"


I need a convenient way to get the IDs . . .  sad  Thanks, though!!

Unfortunately, jql/autocompletedata seems to be ordered alphabetically, not following field configuration.
