I am attempting to search a specific custom content type using SharePoint Online's REST Search API. Here is the URL Request.


The problem is that the content type has custom fields which I need returned. The dataset returned does not show those custom fields. I want to know if there is a way I can craft the URL to be sure to include my custom fields.

You should use selectproperties as paul suggested

After adding it your query should look like below

    Actually, it's &selectproperties='columnName,columnName2' AFAIK.
