simple restapi call to get allowedValues from customfield_xxx

Hi All,

I am hitting a wall with the api calls and getting basic information back from a call.

when using
https://99xyz.atlassian.net/rest/api/2/issue/createmeta?projectKeys=PMO&issuetypeName=Bug&expand=projects.issuetypes.fields

part of the data returned is

public 'customfield_10602' => 
                        object(stdClass)[30]
                          public 'required' => boolean false
                          public 'schema' => 
                            object(stdClass)[31]
                              public 'type' => string 'string' (length=6)
                              public 'custom' => string 'com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.customfieldtypes:select' (length=56)
                              public 'customId' => int 10602
                          public 'name' => string 'XX_ABC' (length=6)
                          public 'operations' => 
                            array (size=1)
                              0 => string 'set' (length=3)
                          public 'allowedValues' => 
                            array (size=5)
                              0 => 
                                object(stdClass)[32]
                                  public 'self' => string 'https://99xyz.atlassian.net/rest/api/2/customFieldOption/10509' (length=65)
                                  public 'value' => string 'Option 1' (length=31)
                                  public 'id' => string '10509' (length=5)
                              1 => 
                                object(stdClass)[33]
                                  public 'self' => string 'https://99xyz.atlassian.net/rest/api/2/customFieldOption/10510' (length=65)
                                  public 'value' => string 'Option Two' (length=28)
                                  public 'id' => string '10510' (length=5)

What call do I use to return just this data for the cutom field "XX_ABC" rather than use the full call above.

I am happy to call each customFieldOption, but how do I know what ones are associated with wjhat custom field?

thx

The reason for the call requiring project and issue type is Field COnfiguration Schemes, which allow for distinct values for the same feild, depending on their context.

SO to get a list of values for a field you must use the call above.

thanks for the feedback Eddy,

I will leave this open for one more day incase anyone else has a hack.

appreciate it,
