I have one list which contains cross-site lookup field. I need to filter with this field using REST API. Below is my URL

var url = _spPageContextInfo.webAbsoluteUrl + "/_api/web/Lists(guid'" + listId + "')/items/?$select=Created,Title,Project/Id&$expand=Project/Id&$filter=Project/Id eq 3"

It gives below error

Microsoft.SharePoint.SPExceptionThe field or property 'Project' does not exist.

Any help would be appreciated.

Unfortunately you can't expand the column 'Project' as its not on the same site.

REST API's expand supports only for same site list columns.

See this for more reference.
