Following the documentation here: https://developer.atlassian.com/cloud/jira/platform/rest/v3/api-group-projects/#api-rest-api-3-project-search-get

 

 

Trying to get all projects by category, but I am getting results from other categories

The REST APIs URLS are case sensitive.  I think your problem is the categoryID should be categoryId.

 

this worked as expected for me:

And I only know this from pulling my hair out multiple times by making this very same mistake.

turns out clearing my browser history fixed the issue for access in the web browser, because i had previously visited the site with ID, every time i would input Id it would auto change it to ID
