Summary0026471: REST API does not have search methods similar to SOAP API

SOAP API have methods like:

  • mc_issue_get_id_from_summary - search issue ID by summary (title)
  • mc_filter_search_issue_ids - search issue IDs by complex query (including searching by custom fields)

New REST JSON API should offer similar functionality.

If this is already possible - documentation should be updated to reflect that. Right now most of the are extremely short one-liner descriptions.

TagsNo tags attached.

Just a side note concerning

mc_issue_get_id_from_summary - search issue ID by summary (title)

I think this is a quite questionable function, e.g. what's the expected result if there is more than one issue with that summary?

Is there any reason why this function can not return multiple ids?

Even if it would return single id - this function is useful when summary is unique. For example, bug reports are being created via API, without human interaction.

Is there any reason why this function can not return multiple ids?

You would have to introduce a new function as changing this one would break existing API / apps.

This whole ticket is about new functions. REST API have no such functions.
