How can I get the description of a custom field in Jira Cloud via REST API?

I use /rest/api/2/field to retrieve all fields and find my custom field there. The description property is missing though. I search for an ?expand= possibility but found none. Is there a way to get the description?

@m.schmidt - as far as I can see, the API does not officially support any way to fetch the description. I’ve also poked around with expands, but no dice. I’ll ping the team to see if there’s some unofficial/undocumented way to get it via the API.
