Do you mean the options currently selected on a custom field for a particular issue, or the whole list of possible options for the field for a given project and issuetype?

Yes i mean i want know for particular issue

issue.getCustomFieldValue(customfield) will return an array of the currently selected options, which you can then iterate over to get the list of options. (Sorry, I don't use python, but that's the java api call which will do the job)

cfm = ComponentManager.getInstance().getCustomFieldManager()


example=issue.getCustomFieldValue(cf) // returns error.

this page says it returns object. are you sure it returns array ? also what is the type of array.

Yes, an array of options IS an object. Your variable "example" will look like a generic object, but if you delve into it, you'll find it's an array.
