a query with result range still returns the last result only Edited

Hi

I am following an example in the documentation here.

* Use negative indexes to return the last entries in build list, e.g. [-5:-1] returns last five builds in list

This curl command:

 

curl --user usr1:password12 http://localhost:8085/rest/api/latest/result.json?expand=results[-5:-1].result

 

returns 

curl: (3) [globbing] bad range specification in column 66

I have 37 results for this plan.

A simpler command using [0] also returns error

curl --user usr1:password12 http://localhost:8085/rest/api/latest/result.json?expand=results[0].result

[globbing] bad range in column 70.

 

I solved the problem with globbing error by using -g flag. However I only get the latest result. 

results[0].result works as expected

results[-5:-1].result still returns the last result. Currently there are 38 results in my plan.

I found the answer for this error :

curl: (3) [globbing] bad range specification in column

  -g flag has to be used with a curl command that includes brackets.

Error is gone when -g is used. So this command works:

url --user usr1:password12 http://localhost:8085/rest/api/latest/result.json?expand=results[0].result

But this command only returns the last result (the same as the result when using [0]):

url --user usr1:password12 http://localhost:8085/rest/api/latest/result.json?expand=results[-5:-1].result

even though I have multiple results. What am I missing? Thank you.
