I am using the above endpoint to return issues via a JQL query, however, no matter what I try I cannot persuade it to return the issue type.
The data returned when posting the above is correct, but the issuetype is not returned in the "fields" array.
If I use the /rest/api/3/search?jql=project=IXPHD&expand=names endpoint then I receive the issuetype field as expected.
"description": "A problem which impairs or prevents the functions of the product.",
So, is there a way to return that field data from the search endpoint? I'm probably missing something simple but I just cannot work out what :)
@John Young The issue type isn't going to be returned by the name that you are expecting (like epic, story, task, etc), instead, you'll get a number by the "id" which represents the under the hood of the issue type identification number. Hope this helps!
Hi @John Young
Did you supply JQL when you called it in your first example, as those results seem to be from another endpoint?
Please look here to learn what is possible with the issue search using JQL one:
