Custom plugin: Redmine's custom fields


I was wonder if there was an efficient way to retrieve the list of custom fields and their potential values from the Redmine API. Data mining the issues.json is not only time extensive, but also potentially incomplete, and I haven’t been able to find any other custom field related JSON to extract the information from. As it is, the effected Custom Field IDs and their potential values are hard coded, and I’m really not a big fan of it.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Thank you in advance,
