This is the API URI I'm using and able to get data with this condition:


However, there is a custom attribute named "External ID" that I want to extract to, and when I embed it in the url just like how i embedded "creator name", I get not a valid field name error. Please help in resolving the error. Thank you!

Referring to the discussion here:


If your custom attribute is string type, it would look like:

https://myjazzserver:9443/jazz/rpt/repository/workitem?fields=workitem/workItem[projectArea/name='Defect Management']/(id|summary|(creator/name)|(stringExtensions[key='External ID']/value))


I hope this helps.
