When querying the fields required to create a ticket via the rest API, the returned fields seem to be sorted alphabetically by their key.

How can I determine the order of the fields as shown in the JIRA web client?
Since project managers can edit the order of fields in the project settings, how can I access this order form a 3rd party app to replicate the behaviour and the project managers intent?

Hello @Wortex17 

As described in that Project settings document you linked to, fields are 'sorted' in the GUI by their placement in a screen. That screen can also contain tabs, which further arranges the fields into groups.

So, to replicate all that, you'd need to get what screens the fields are on, then get the tabs on those screens, then get the fields on those tabs on those screens.


The corresponding REST API endpoints are:

  1. Screens
  2. Screen tabs
  3. Screen tab fields

Have fun!
