How to get project default assignee from Jira rest api?

Despite being documented as available, the assigneeType field is never returned from the api.

Hi @AbbyMarieFlood. Welcome to the developer community!

Which API method are you currently trying to use? There is the GET Project method:

In the response, you’ll find an assigneeType key, and the value will either be UNASSIGNED or PROJECT_LEAD. Additionally, there is a lead object in the response, which contains an accountId and displayName.
