i am unable to fetch comments of the tickets.

i am passing the url : /rest/api/2/search?jql=project=ABC&maxResults=-1 to fetch all ticket information available in the project ABC. i can get all information but not the comment part.


while searching  individually for a ticket i can see the comment field.

url :/rest/api/2/issue/ABC-9


can anyone help  what i should do?

Hello @saswati.mahapatra,

Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

Thank you for sharing the details.

Testing on my local site using a simple search also doesn’t return the comments and checking some similar cases, I believe this is by default, but it’s possible to get all fields by adding &fields=*all to make sure it will return all fields, including comments.


You can also use the endpoint below in case you want to get only some fields (this one only works using v2):


Please, take your time to test and let us know how it goes.

Kind regards,
