Why is project online task custom field returning nothing when it has value?

I have an http request that pulls the "WORK ORDER" custom field from a project task. The http request succeeds but when I compose to see what it's value is it shows nothing. 



This action succeeds but this is what I get:




Why does the action work for default fields but not this one? Why is it succeeding but returning no data. And there is supposed to be data, I checked the task and it has values for that field.

Hi @Mgodby ,


Maybe this current project does not exist, or the WORKORDER is indeed an empty object.


Have you tried removing "?$select = WORKORDER", and then looking at the execution result of Flow, and seeing what the WORKORDER attribute value is in the body.

I tried removing the select statement but it changed nothing. It only returned default fields and none of the customfields. I found a way to pull customfields from a task but it has the same issue of not giving me the value of the customfield and will not return customfields with with empty values:




Is there a way to get all the customfields of a task regardless of whether they are empty or not? 


Thank you.
