The API docs discuss filtering here:

However, none of these options work for commits

I want to get a all commits for a repository where the commit messages matches a particular string. And I want to limit the fields to just date, message and commit hash.

Hi Matt and welcome to the community.

I'm afraid that the commits endpoint does not support filtering and sorting at the moment.

It is possible to limit the fields that are returned as follows:<workspace-id>/<repo-slug>/commits/?,values.message,values.hash

We have a feature request for adding filtering and sorting to the commits endpoint:

I would suggest adding your vote to the feature request (by selecting the Vote for this issue link) as the number of votes helps the development team and product managers better understand the demand for new features. You are more than welcome to leave any feedback, and you can also add yourself as a watcher (by selecting the Start watching this issue link) if you'd like to get notified via email on updates.

Implementation of new features is done as per our policy here and any updates will be posted in the feature request.

In the meantime, as a workaround, you could retrieve all commits and then use another tool that filters JSON data, like jq, in order to filter the results.

Kind regards,
