JIRA SoapService RemoteIssue.getCustomFieldValues() problem


We have JIRA 5.0.2 and a Java EE application, which retrieves the JIRA issues from the server via RPC.

These issues contain custom fields. One of these fields is a string content like this “pXHHQw3kA1kDx2CnJ6eskE6ZP/I”.

If I get this value via RPC from the application then the value of this field will be the following: “pXHHQw3kA1kDx2CnJ6eskE6ZP”.

It is incorrect, because the “/I” is missing at the end of the original string.

Here is the code from the application:


RemoteIssue issues[] = jira.jiraSoapService.getIssuesFromFilter(token, Jira.getOpenIssuesFilterId());

for (int i = 0; i < issues.length; i++)


RemoteCustomFieldValue[] cfvs = issues[i].getCustomFieldValues();

for (int ci = 0; ci < cfvs.length; ci++)


if (cfvs[ci].getCustomfieldId().equals(Jira.getCustomFieldId(Jira.CUSTOMFIELD)))

String value = cfvs[ci].getValues()[0].trim());



Is it a JIRA bug? If it is, can you recommend at least a workaround?

Please help us to solve this problem.

I am waiting for your kind reply.

Thanks and Regards,

József Kovács

Note that we'll not provide future development on SOAP API, so even if the bug became confirmed, it will not be fixed.

Please take a look into this page for reference: https://developer.atlassian.com/display/JIRADEV/JIRA+Remote+API+Reference
