REST API to search for a keyword in commit comment/message.

I need a REST API which can be used to search for a keyword (say 'mark') in commit's message.

For e.g. something like this:



Is there any REST API available for this? If no REST API is available, then any other solution?


I have also seen that in REST API which lists commit's comments, there is filtering and sorting parameter 'q'. Can this 'q' be used to solve the above problem?

Hi @Kushagra Behere and welcome to the community!

I'm afraid that the commits API endpoint does not support filtering with the 'q' parameter at the moment.

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

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

I would suggest voting for it and leaving a comment there to further express your interest.

Kind regards,
