JIRA REST API: Create Issues via API, required fields

Hi, can somebody help me to find out how can I get a list of all required fields for creating an issue?

There's https://example.atlassian.net/rest/api/2/field API that returns a list of fields, but we can not see there what fields are required for a specific project, for example for a project, the "components" are required, for another - no?


Is there a possibility to check the required fields to create an issue?

Thank you!
