Filter issue - id, topic by username and status

I am trying to figure out the rest api to get the JIRA issues assigned to a user X with status TO DO, and it must return the JIRA id, issue topic, issue status and ignore all other information like comments, issues, description etc.

api i am looking for i assume it must be like this,

curl -X GET -u saravana:xyz http://xyz.yza.local/rest/api/2/search?user=saravana&status=todo


return value must be,

`[ { "id" : "123", "issue" : "JIRA rest api, fetch the user specific issue", "status" : "TO DO"}........more issues]`

You're not far off, try 

curl -D- -u saravana:xyz -X GET -H "Content-Type: application/json"  http://xyz.yza.local/rest/api/2/search?jql=status=TO+DO

To get just the id, summary and status (not that you need status, because you know it's TO DO already because that's what you're searching for), add


hi Nic, thanks for your info... i tried adding the user filter, as curl -u saravana:xyz -X GET -H "Content-Type: application/json" http://xyz.yza.local/rest/api/2/search?jql=status=TO+DO&user=saravana.kumar&fields=key,summary,status ............... somehow, &user=saravana.kumar is not having any effect... it fetches all people's issues

Yes, that's correct. You've used the clause "user". Unless you have a custom field called "user", it's nonsense so the API is ignoring it. I suspect you mean reporter, assignee, creator, watcher or collaborator...
