How to get custom field in a sprint board with JIRA cloud API?

Seikyo Cho April 10, 2024

I added a field in project settings' issue types page and want to get the item by JIRA REST API.


I tried these APIs but didn't find the field I added.

Where can I get it?

Hi @Seikyo Cho ,

in case you do not have it, here is the link to the Jira cloud rest api documentation:

According to it (
will give you all the fields - including the custom field you are trying to get.

This will show you the customfield ID, which you will need to get results for this specific field.
Something like customfield_10101.

An easier way to get the customfield ID is via the field configuration. If you edit a field's configuration the URL ends with something like this: ?ID=10101
That's the field's ID you can then use in your api call.

Thank you.

I tried SP filed but didn't find it in /rest/api/3/field. However I changed to another name Test Field then found it there.

If I want to get the special custom field in one project, is there a way to set project id with field API?
