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:

https://docs.atlassian.com/jira/REST/cloud/#api/2/field/{fieldKey}/option-getAllOptions

 

But it doesn't seem to . . .

Thanks!

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  https://example.jira.com/rest/api/2/jql/autocompletedata/suggestions?fieldName=Risk | 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.
