JIRA Cloud Rest API - Unable to retrieve required fields for a specific transition

Hi everyone,

I have setup required field validators for a specific transition and was expecting the JIRA Cloud Rest API to return me which of those fields were required based on the validators setup.

I am calling the following API method:

The fields object is returned but the specific field I made required in the validator has required set to false.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Unfortunately, the rest api has no visibility over validators. Validators are code that gets executed by the OSworkflow workflow engine that’s at the heart of Jira, and that code gets executed only during a transition.
