I am trying the rest api /tasks?expand=true to get the details of the story in it. But when I call the request with "/tasks?expand=true", stories for only some tasks get expanded rather then for all tasks. Is their any setting which we need to enable while making an rest api request for tasks with "expand=true" ? 

Thanks in advance.

Hi @Mahir Shah

Can you share some more details on your use-case? In my testing I did not see the Story details unfurling even when media type was configured as:


Though I can see it in the example response body. Two paths forward that I suggest; either separately pull your Stories (as you have the Story ID returned for the Tasks), and/or log a support ticket for further investigation by our Jira Align support team (make sure to include the details of your Jira Align instance). 

Good luck!
