How to find id of an issue type for a non-admin user.

I know it can be done with admin rights, but is it possible through non-admin rights using some REST clients or something similar?

using /rest/api/2/issue/createmeta REST api you can get issue Type ID

check this

Hi Tarun,

You can view create issue screen that will load all issue types. Direct URL should be like this:

<your JIRA instance>/secure/CreateIssue!default.jspa

then just view HTML source of the page using your browser and you will have all informations in below form:

&lt;option class="11611" id="issuetype116113" data-icon="/jira/images/icons/issuetypes/task.png" value="3"&gt;

where value is the issue type ID.

I hope that will help.

Best Regards,
