Hi @Jawad Zakhour 

Direct REST API search returns huge data.


You can do filtering by adding; "&fields="


It is possible to indicate system or custom fields as a parameter such as key, status, priority, type etc.

So that, it only returns the needed JSON info and response quickly.

Hope it helps.

Hello Tansu,
The problem is that I need everything except the "avatarURLS" field.
And this field is inside the "changelog"->"Histories"->"author".
And this is the only field that I don't want.
I need the changelog to be present in the response.

Thank you for your time

@Tansu Akdeniz Sorry for bothering, but is there any way to do exclude only the field "avatarURLS" from the response.

As I know there is no way to exclude it.
