Obtaining a list of Components in a Project (version 7)

The company I work for is upgrading JIRA to v7.3.6 from v6.3.12 and I'm having trouble finding answers to some questions. I am just a user, not an administrator. Here is one of the questions:

Currently I can obtain a list of components in a project and their process ID numbers by using this API call:

However, when I replace the version 6 JIRA-URL with the one for version 7, I get an empty json set: {"expand":"projects","projects":[]}

Research suggested that https://JIRA-URL/rest/api/2/issue/createmeta?findAllForProject(DSCUST) would provide what I needed. Although I get a long block of json code, Components that exist in the project are not listed.

The Project (DSCUST) exists and some Components have been defined.

Could someone who knows more about this than I do (and that will be just about anybody) toss me a clue?

It's easy and possible using REST APIs to get the list of project components.

Latest release -- https://docs.atlassian.com/jira/REST/server/#api/2/project-getProjectComponents

REST end point - GET /rest/api/2/project/{projectIdOrKey}/components

and yes it's supported by JIRA 7.x versions

Thanks again, Tarun. I now have the needed information.
