How to get the initiative name from Epic using the Web API/Excel Export?

We have initiative/epic relationship setup in portfolio. Epic have a custom field called Initiative Link which points to the parent Initiative. When I query fields of the Epic using the Jira Rest API / Or export fields to excel. The initiative link points to an arbid name like below... even the parent link of an epic points to a value like this. How do I get the initiative name the Epic is pointing to via the Web API or an excel export? Thanks in advance..

Hi @Dhigha Sekaran,

I am facing the same issue for accessing the values for Parent Links to which the Epic points.

Did you happen to find out the solution for the same?
