Forms are represented and stored in JSON format. The JSON representation of a form contains data pertaining to all form questions, answers, formatting, associated request types, and various metadata.
Currently the REST API only supports retrieving and updating issue forms. These are distinct from template forms which belong to a project and cannot be filled out, whereas issue forms can given they belong to an issue. Besides their differences, an issue form can be thought of as a copy of a template form that may contain answers and a state, such as open or submitted.
To find out how issue forms are structured in the REST API, view the IssueForm response value under Get form endpoint.
