How to get the rank with Jira API

I am looking to get the rank(The order of items in the backlog for example) from my jira board, and read it from the API. We used to be able to do this with a customfield but now we can not. Is there any way to get this custom field back? Or is there another way to do it?

Rank is a string now, not an obvious number. Will that be useful?


I found the string, but it is really weird. I get strings like x|xxxxx: how do I decode these strings to usable numbers?
