How to get the mapping of Jira attachments and Issue Attaching File Link(custom field)



I have added the custom field "Issue Attaching File Link" to categorize and differentiate the already attached documents in Jira.

This custom field description says something like this: "This field allows you to select issue attachments and store references to them in a field"

This field allows to select specific files from the files that are already attached. 



How can I find the link between what is returned from REST API for these two sections?

Rest API for get issue returns something like this(http://jiratest/rest/agile/1.0/issue/EVAJ4S-1639),

REST API result For custom field:

  • customfield_13549: [
    • "com.atlassian.jira.issue.attachment.Attachment@fffffff9"

REST API result For attachments:





Best Regards,
