A REST API question - a JQL works in JIRA but not when I use it in a curl call

This worked in an advanced search in JIRA :

project = OTCI AND 'Development Site' = 'Remote - WFO Unix'

but the curl command doesn't return anything:

curl -G "https://ontrack.venturesolutions.com/jira/rest/api/2/search?jql=project%20%3D%20OTCI%20AND%20Development%20Site%20%3D%20Remote%20-%20WFO%20Unix&startAt=&maxResults=1000" -H 'Content-Type: application/json' -H 'Postman-Token: 753b8f93-53d2-4b1a-9b72-d4abd' -H 'cache-control: no-cache' -u 'Unix2Jira:Jira@XXX' -k --cacert dummy_path_none_required/ontrack_venturesolutions_com.crt -d

while this curl command works fine:

curl -G "https://ontrack.venturesolutions.com/jira/rest/api/2/search?jql=project%20%3D%20OTCI%20AND%20STATUS%20!=%20CLOSED%20AND%20STATUS%20!=%20Wrap-up%20AND%20STATUS%20!=%20COMPLETE&startAt=2000&maxResults=1000" -H 'Content-Type: application/json' -H 'Postman-Token: 753b8f93-53d2-4b1a-9b72-d4abd' -H 'cache-control: no-cache' -u 'Unix2Jira:Jira@XXX' -k --cacert dummy_path_none_required/ontrack_venturesolutions_com.crt -d

Does the curl command not have access to the column "Development Site" ?

Going to take a guess at this. But first:

Curl = browser. It has no extra or less access. 

WFO=UNIX or Development Site = Remote is throwing a problem. I can't spot anything else on my phone. 

Ah start at= is nothing in the first command. Could you populate this and rerun?  Also just run that JQL normally and confirm it returns values. 

your right, I didn't have the startAt set.  But I corrected that and still no records selected:

curl -G "https://ontrack.venturesolutions.com/jira/rest/api/2/search?jql=project%20%3D%20OTCI%20AND%20Development%20Site%20%3D%20Remote%20-%20WFO%20Unix&startAt=0&maxResults=1000" -H 'Content-Type: application/json' -H 'Postman-Token: 753b8f93-53d2-4b1a-9b72-d4abd8352221' -H 'cache-control: no-cache' -u 'Unix2Jira:Jira@123' -k --cacert dummy_path_none_required/ontrack_venturesolutions_com.crt -d

I noticed that when I call our function that builds the curl command , I am entering :

JiraGet key,fields:{customfield_17711:value} project = OTCI AND 'Development Site' = 'Remote - WFO Unix'

but it looks like when it builds the curl command it is removing the single quotes and that may be messing up the curl command.  I'll do some more checking if I can follow the code in our function to see how  that is happening and let you know.

Thank you for your time on  this..

yes,  thats what the problem was.  I was supposed to comment out the quotes.  Its working fine now.  Thanks again
