Create cross-repository pull requests with REST API 2.0

I’m trying to create pull requests using REST API 2.0. That works fine for creation of pull requests within the same repository (both target and source branches belong to the same repository). I’m struggling to create a cross-repository pull request between forked child and fork parent. I can’t figure out how to specify source:branch:name: input parameter. I tried to prefix it with the source repository namespace (like dmilke:branch_name, which works on some other hosting services), but I get bad request (HTTP status code 400) source: branch not found: error.

I’d appreciate if anyone can help me with this. Thanks.

Okay, answering to myself, perhaps someone else will find it useful…

When reading pull requests, there is a field source:repository:full_name:, which I completely overlooked. Specifying it as an input parameter, together with already mentioned source:branch:name:, creates cross-repository pull request between forked repositories.
