I have a WP site that runs on WP version 4.3 and using a plugin WP REST API version2-beta9. I have a custom post type animals which has an ACF select field of class which has values like mammals, reptile, etc.

If getting values of custom post types is available for WP REST API, is it possible that I can GET request on my endpoint to retrieve values of all mammals under the animals custom post type? If yes, how do I do that?

  • Are you using the REST API plugin or the one that's bundled into WP version 4.4? If the plugin, what version?

I have checked the WP REST API documentation for the version2-beta9, it is not yet implemented so I guess I have to code my own plugin to work around on it.
