In which case is com.pyxis.greenhopper.jira:gh-epic-link missing from /rest/api/2/field response?

We’re observing a strange situations in some Jira Cloud instances, where /rest/api/2/field doesn’t contain a field of type com.pyxis.greenhopper.jira:gh-epic-link. We would like to understand when it happens, because some of the functionality of our app depends on this field.

We’ve tried:

  • Uninstalling Jira Software: the field is still included in the response.
  • Making the request under the user who doesn’t have access to Jira Software: the field is still included in the response.
  • Having only classic / only next-gen projects.
  • Removing Epic Link from the issue screen.

So far, we couldn’t reproduce it ourselves. Does anyone know when this happens?
