Structure REST-API: Problem getting forest / values resources

Hi guys

I hope someone could help me out a bit..
Our CEO would like to have an automated "flat" export of our structures and issues in the structures.

I already managed to get the structures itself and the forest resources.
From the formula attribute of the forest-response I extracted the rowIds, itemstypes etc already.

Problem 1 - strange value:

One element in the formula field is irritating me a bit:


For me that looks like an error...?


The main-structure contains several itemTypes:


Problem 2 - Value-resource Repsonse not "complete"

If I now try to access "correct" (not the possible error above) value-resource with the following request:


"rows":[29060,29070,29290,4807]    }]}

- 29060 and 29070 are of itemType "folder"
- 29290 and 4807 are issues

If i check the resulting xml-file i the something alike this:

<values xmlns:xsi="http..." xmlns:xs="http..." xsi:type="xs:string">FolderA</values>
<values xmlns:xsi="http..." xmlns:xs="http..." xsi:type="xs:string">FolderB</values>
<values xmlns:xsi="http..." xmlns:xs="http..." xsi:type="xs:string">IssueSummary1</values>
<values xmlns:xsi="http..." xmlns:xs="http..." xsi:type="xs:string">IssueSummary2</values>
<values xmlns:xsi="http..." xmlns:xs="http..." xsi:type="xs:string">Task</values>
<values xmlns:xsi="http..." xmlns:xs="http..." xsi:type="xs:string">Improvement</values>


Is there a way that i get "empty" values for folders? like this I can't combine the result-values to a single row if I have not the same amount of records per "<data>" element...

Your help would be really appreciated.
