What is the permission called so that Rest API call to requirements to allow read of custom fields?

What is the permission called so that I can use the API call to requirements to allow me to read custom fields?

 

Using this URL

http://{domain}/rest-api/service/api/{version}/projects/{projectid}/requirements

I enter my credentials and get this error:

Access denied. You must have Read access to CustomFields, to perform this action. 403

 

In QAComplete I can see the fields.

 

I asked my supervisor to give me this permision, but couldn't figure it out.(I am not an admin) So I figured I ask SmartBear for some help.

QAComplete Version: 11.4 Build: 11.4.578

    "manage custom fields" permission worked for me with the Rest Api but down side is the user could modify/add/delete. There isn't really just a read permission for custom field. Unfortunately.
