Is there a REST API Call to retrieve all comments on a project or repository?

I know about the following calls:


I was wondering if there was a way to retrieve all the comments (particularly defects) associated with a project or repository without having to specify the review's permaID. This way I can make one REST call and categorize all the returned data instead of a REST call for each review (which would spam the server with hundreds of requests!).

The Defect Metrics section shown when looking at a list of all the reviews for a particular project shows an aggregation of the data I need (pie charts of issues by severity, status, defect-type, and qualifier) but I don't know how to get this data programmatically for any project.

It doesn't look like any official REST API exists for what you want, however you can pull a list of all defects using the following page on your instance: cru/commentSearch .

Select the Defects checkbox, and you should get all Defects globally. Selecting the Project will limit the search to that project, etc.

I would be happy with an unofficial way to get the list shown on that commentSearch page programmatically. Reporting on defect metrics is quite difficult without this functionality. I would be happy to try anything to get the data out short of calling up that page and parsing the rendered HTML.

I agree with @Mena Samuel, this functionality would be very helpful for us.
After almost 2 years, had it been developed or not, @Nick Pellow?
