I want to distinguish between a text field that uses the default text renderer and one that uses the wiki style renderer and was wondering if there's a way to distinguish between them from the rest API?
Take a look at this old question/answer in Google's cached search results.
As far as I know, Jamie's answer on there is still a valid - this information isn't available via the JIRA REST API. Hopefully someone can correct me if I am wrong.
What you can do is use the expand parameter to expand "renderedFields"to get rendered values in the response.
