I have a problem with retrieving the Description from an Url Field via the Rest Api from SharePoint.

If I make a call and select an Url Field with the normal $select


It retrieves automatically the Url Value from the Url Field.

So I have tried to do it with a Expand:


But that query doesn't work.

So how can I obtain the Description Information from a Url Field via the Rest API?

1 Answer 1


When you use URL


You will get two properties

  1. d:Description
  2. d:Url

So you don't need to expand

<m:properties><d:FolderUrl m:type="SP.FieldUrlValue"><d:Description>Google Description</d:Description><d:Url>http://google.com</d:Url></d:FolderUrl></m:properties>
