I also want to get the custom columns via REST, If you fire up Google Postman or Advanced REST Api client you can get a desired json response for the query below.


But in the Post's list I made a custom column and the custom field doesn't come with that response, How can I get the value from this field using a rest api call ?

  • I get all fields in a list with this url (mydev/sites/site/_api/SP.AppContextSite(@target)/web/lists/… List')/Fields)

  • hi @Gol.D, thanks for the replay, yeah /fields gives me the info about the fields(metadata) but what I need is the values of the fields for every item comming in the response when I do the call, e.g by default the list have some columns, but I've add it one more let's say customColumn1, when I do the call customColumn1 doesn´t appear in the response.

add a $select=myfield1,myfield2,etc onto your REST url. Note that once you add the $select parameter, only the fields you explicitly select will be returned. Without a $select parameter, all built-in fields are returned.
