How to find issue property values of the Jira issues from the REST API call


With the Add/Update entity post function, it is possible to set issue properties in a issue as a hidden field.

The guide explains how to get the stored properties from a REST API call. With that, you can retrieve the information for integration with other systems.


You can use the following REST API endpoint

curl -X GET https://<JIRA-BASE-URL>/rest/api/latest/issue/<ISSUE-KEY>/properties/<KEY>


If the issue ENPR-4 has the entity stored

Entity KeyEntity NameEntity Value
departmentDepartmentSystem Reliability Engineering

The following curl command 

curl -u admin:admin -X GET

will return 

{ "keys" : [ { "key" : "Department", "self" : "System Reliability Engineering" } ] }
