Ask a question

filedAgainst, Rest API, and Simple query what am I doing wrong.

Wayne Sepega (611) | asked Jul 23 '14, 8:40 a.m.

I have the following URL, which is supposed to use the simple query to search our work items based on the filedAgainst field:


I've also tried:


When running both of these, it appears that the filedAgainst is being ignored, and I get back all the work items in the respective project.

Anyone see anything wrong with the URL? Should I be using a different portion of the API? Searching via the dc:title works just fine so I believe I'm hitting the right URL, I just can't seem to figure out why the filedAgainst isn't working.

Basically you need to percent encode the filedAgaint value before putting in the URI.

Where is not working as well, still getting the default list of items.
