How to get the Severity of a issue ?

I use issue.fields.status to get the status of the issue, but how do I get the ' severity ' ?

Severity is going to be a custom field, so you'll need to use something like issue.customfield(customfieldobject).  I don't know how to do that in python

Thank you for the quick reply. As you said that severity is a customfield I did lotta searching and found how to get it. I need to use



now how do I get the ' *** ' (digits) ? I found out that I can get it from the Jira website's source page or a much easy option is to inspect the required element ( severity in my case ).

Thank you
