Rest API to list all the Capabilities under the requested epic

Sam V I'm New Here Aug 13, 2022


I am looking for an API to list all the linked capabilities under the EPIC and all the Features under the requested capabilities.

I tried the 



/align/api/2/Capobilities/{id} endpoint but couldn't see the required information. 

Any pointer will be of much help.

Equivalently, the same principle can be applied to the Features endpoint.

Making a GET call towards it, along with a filter for the parentID -- matching the Capability of interest -- will return all IDs of the related features.

curl -X GET '$select=id&filter=parentID%20eq%202326' -H 'accept: */*' -H 'Authorization: bearer MyObfuscatedToken'

The result should look like this:

Hi @Sam V the following query will likely satisfy your need:

curl -X GET '$select=id&filter=parentID%20eq%202221' -H 'accept: */*' -H 'Authorization: bearer MyObfuscatedToken'

The teardown is as follows:

  • $select=id -- this parameter will tell API to only return the ID of the related Capabilities
  • filter=parentID%20eq%202221 -- the filter parameter defines that only records whose parentID properties equal the Epic ID "2221" parameter informed.

The result should look like this:


Each number in this JSON response is an ID of a related Capability.
