Jira REST API error code 404


I am system admin of my Jira server and have access to all the custom fields. 

I am trying to run following rest api in browser

But I get following error

{"errorMessages":["A custom field option with id '10981' does not exist"],"errors":{}}


What wrong am I doing?

I am able to explore same field from Jira Admin GUI. but REST API does not work. 

following API works fine and gives me all the list of custom fields and in the list field id 10981 is also listed with details. It means I do have access.

This is probably a field with no options like a text field or something

What are you trying to accomplish anyway?



Thanks for your response. 


I just want to know what is the result of this api command. that is it. But it is failing every time. 

I have tried with number type field also. But it fails. 

I dont understand when you say "field with no option"




There are no actual options for these fields and the data is usually entered during ticket creation. Same thing with number field as well. 

Try a select list, you will get the result

No luck.

same error with select list type also.
