How to get request type key from the request type name for specific JSD project

Hi everyone,


In my java code, for a specific JSD project, I need to get the request type key from the request type name.


I need that information because I want to set the request type with a specific name to a issue. For that I need to create something similar to VpOrigin object that contains portal key and request type key, for example:


Portal key is easy to get from the issue, but I dont see how to get the request type key.

One idea could be to use 


and it's method getRequestTypes. In a parameter I see RequestTypeQuery but I dont see inside how to limit the search on the specific JSD project (I have the request types with the same name in different JSD projects thats why).


Thank you

Looking at the Jira Service Desk Server Java API I believe that you should review the methods in the package: 

Specifically, please see:


I hope this helps.
