Is there a way to get the user email from expansions in the REST API

Eg: If I make a cql search for a particular user id mention, can I somehow fetch the user email in the same API call ?


http://localhost:8090/rest/api/content/search?cql=(mention != 'anonymous' and type='comment' and created>now("-15h") )&expand=history,version

@sabzx  Simple answer is no. The API you are using here is for content, and you will only get user name and user key as users information.

Thanks @DPK JCurrently the API does not return any information about the mentionee. It only has information about the mentioner. Is there anyone way to get the mentionee's information?
