Service Desk API Request Search Term

I'm using /rest/servicedeskapi/request api to return a list of requests that are logged.  We have a custom field setup, and I'd like to filter the response to only contain the items that match the value in the custom field.

According to the documentation at, the searchTerm parameter only searches the summary field.

Is there anyway to apply a search term to a custom field using the API?

Hey Nathan,

Not at present. Keep in mind that /request will only return the current user's requests anyway.

You could always use the JIRA API for this - although that won't be available to customer accounts.

Out of curiosity, what's your custom field ?
