Extract customfields from issue(s)

Introduction

In Jira Cloud, custom fields are managed in a way that allows for flexibility and dynamic creation. Each new custom field that you create within a Jira Cloud instance is assigned a unique ID. This ID is used to identify and manage the custom field's configuration and data within the Jira system.
In this particular case, the library contains multiples helpers method will help you to extract the customfield information by type using the response buffer.
