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

Introduction

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.

How-to

You can use the following REST API endpoint

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

Example

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 https://jira-instance1.net/rest/api/2/issue/ENPR-4/properties/department

will return 

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