Stuck on an issue?

And, if you’re still stuck at the end, we’re happy to hop on a call to see how we can help out.

Is there a way to exclude certain fields from a `getEntries` call?

See original GitHub issue
  • Node Version: v7.7.2
  • Npm Version: 4.4.4
  • Platform: macOS Sierra
  • Package Version: 4.1.2

If I have a list of articles, is it possible to exclude the article body from a client.getEntries call? I would like to do this to speed up the response from the call when listing all the articles. Does that make sense?

Hello 👋

I found this thread while trying to find documentation on the select operator. I’m wondering if there is an invert/negate operation for select, similar to ‘-’ for ordering. The reason why is I’m trying to select all fields except one or two.

Hi @mrmartineau Yes you can do that using the select operator.

client.getEntries({content_tytpe: 'myContentTypeId', select: 'fields.fieldName, fields.fieldName2'})

For more infos on that check the API documentation. One limitation when using the SDK the sys property will be appended always since it is needed fo the link resolution. Hint: we added SDK snippets in the documentation, so can copy paste code and run it very easily just click on the drop down and choose Javascript.
