Jira Get Issue API

Hi Team,

I was peforming the get issue Operation as below:

GET /rest/api/3/issue/{issueIdOrKey}

And there is note for this operation 

Note: All fields are returned by default. This differs from Search for issues using JQL (GET) and Search for issues using JQL (POST) where the default is all navigable fields.


My query for this operation is, is there a way how I some knows what will be the fields in response to this API.

It talk about all available fields. Is there any doc where all this Fields and their types are being mentioned ? or any JSON payload which describe the almost all fields to this API?

You need to use the next query to read exist custom fields:

Thanks Gonchik,

Do we have anything in v2 API version to get the list of all fields.

I need to know all the fields whether they are custom or the defualt fields. in other words,


I need  a response to this API which includes all possible values for all fields whether they are fefault or custom.

The usual practice is that you retrieve the required fields by iterating through JSON objects recursively. In groovy, if your JSON object returned is say result. then you iterate like result.fields.customfield_id

Basically, you have to retrieve the required values programatically.

Hi Suhas,


I agree with your explanation. Just wanted to confirm on one thing. Is there any metadata API call in v2  to get the list of all fields avaiable in jira?

@Nishant Sharma  Didn't get your question. What is the requirement? And I believe, if its Jira cloud, its api3, api2 is for jira server. isnt it?

with GET /issue, you get all available fields both CF and system fields, i believe.
