Fields that can be queried using the REST API?

Hi!

 

I'm looking for some confirmation of the types of fields that are or are not able to be queried using the REST API. From what I've seen, most read-only fields can't be queried. Some, such as custom multi-select fields, which are read-only, can query for all allowed values except for the null value. Custom multi-select fields which are not read-only are able to query all values, including null. The query looks like this: query=(c_CustomMultiSelect%20contains%20%22null%22). This query works for the non read-only field, but not for the read-only field. Getting the attributes for the read-only custom multi-select field, it has valid AllowedQueryOperators and null is one of the AllowedValues. There are a number of other fields which seem to not support querying through the REST API, and they appear to be read-only, though there are also some read-only fields which do support queries. Is there a field attribute that I'm missing or some other way of determining whether a field is able to be queried or not?


Thanks!

Kiko
