When using the REST API and the issue/createmeta call to get the fields for a specific issue, the fields don't get returned, only the different issue types and some data about the project, when passing 'expand=projects.issuetypes.fields' and the project key and issue type like displayed on: https://developer.atlassian.com/display/JIRADEV/JIRA+REST+API+Example+-+Discovering+meta-data+for+creating+issues and documented on http://docs.atlassian.com/jira/REST/latest/ like so: rest/api/2/issue/createmeta?projectKeys=QE&issuetypeIds=1&expand=projects.issuetypes.fields
The only way the fields are returned is if I don't specify a project key and issue type and only 'expand=projects.issuetypes.fields', but then I get EVERY project in a HUGE JSON blob.
This is for JIRA 5.1.
How do you execute request? Are you 100% sure that you send proper URL - especially is the & character send properly to server? What happen if you pass expand= as first query parameter and then select project or issue type?
If you run those queries from shell, then please make sure that you escapes URL with single quotes (shell interpretes ? and & characters when they are not escaped/quted).
Thanks for your hint with the parameter order. The first try as explained on the following site does not work where the *expand* paramter is at the end of the url. https://developer.atlassian.com/jiradev/api-reference/jira-rest-apis/jira-rest-api-tutorials/jira-rest-api-example-create-issue#JIRARESTAPIExample-CreateIssue-Fieldmeta-dataforcreatingissues But if I set the expand parameter before the other it works. Not work: rest/api/2/issue/createmeta?projectKeys=QE&issuetypeIds=1&expand=projects.issuetypes.fields Works: rest/api/2/issue/createmeta?expand=projects.issuetypes.fields&projectKeys=QE&issuetypeIds=1 Maybe it is also the solution for the question author @Nic Baumann.
