how would I retrieve all of the valid entries for the fixVersion field using the python API

I am building scripts that need to filter Jira based on the selections that are used in the FixVersion field.  I would like to create a list of all the valid entries from every porject that we have in Jira, is this possibel?

May I know what do you mean under python API? 

Because I am preparing in my class methods for REST API e.g.

def getGroups(maxResults):
methods = '/rest/api/2/groups/picker'
parameter = '?maxResults=%s'%maxResults
url = configs.JIRA_BASEURL + methods + parameter
r = requests.get(url=url, auth=(configs.JIRA_USERNAME, configs.JIRA_PASSWORD))
groups = r.json()
return groups

Docs below: 

About fixversions:


For better testing and understanding I use this plugin from Atlassian

it provides all public methods and you can find unpublic.

After that preparing method using packages requests, json.


I hope it is help for you.

yes, that was perfect, thank you.  I am not a programmer, and thought that I was looking for Python commands, but, I see now that the python scripts that I am updating are just sending rest, all makes perfect sense now.  Thanks again.
