API Custom Fields

I need help. I'm confused how this API works with custom_fields and custom_field_values;


Currently I'm just trying to print out Manager First Name and Manager Last Name from a single user.


r = requests.get(url, headers=headers)


data = r.json()


custom_fields = {}

custom_field_values = {}



for custom in data['linked']['custom_fields']:





for values in data['linked']['custom_field_values']:





for field in data['linked']['custom_fields']:

  custom_fields[field['id']] = field['name']




print(custom_fields['47'] + " is:", values['value'], values['links'])

print(custom_fields['48'] + " is:", values['value'])


I'm doing this in Python to just run output is wrong...It keeps wanting to only pull the last name "Dillion" no matter what.

dict_keys(['id', 'name'])

dict_keys(['id', 'value', 'links'])

Manager First Name is: Dillon {'custom_field': {'id': '48', 'type': 'custom_fields'}}

Manager Last Name is: Dillon
