I need to retrieve Lead Time and Cycle Time from Jira Issues, to make my own personalized dashboard.
I'm using the "search" resource, with jql query, but I can't find the "start date" field.
How to obtain this metric using the Jira API?

Currently, there is no gadget for Cycle time. We have a feature request suggesting the implementation of this ability:

Hi @Luciano Vaz
Now is available the solution for Jira Cloud users - Time Between Statuses.
This new app helps you to get the Cycle and Lead Time of your Jira issues.
Our users can set the start/stop/pause timer preferences and highlight overdue issues by setting time limits.
Hope it helps
The original question was how to query cycle and lead times via an API. Time Between Statuses from reading their documentation does not have a REST interface / API. Exports must be done manually to an Excel/CSV.
Please answer the question as there are others who need the ability to perform queries around cycle/lead time and access this information via API.
We analyse this with Jira Software server via Kanban boards and the reports offered there: https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Jira-questions/Re-How-do-I-get-cycle-times-time-in-a-status-from-Jira/qaq-p/1128487/comment-id/359244#M359244
