Pull multiple tickets with comments from rest api

Using the rest api, can I retrieve multiple tickets with their comments, or at least the count of comments in each ticket, using a single call?

@BryanMeyerovich, welcome to the Atlassian developer community.

You didn’t mention self-managed (Server or Data Center) or Cloud, so I’m assuming Cloud. Yes, you can get multiple issues using JQL with GET /rest/api/3/search. And you can get comments for those issues with a URL parameter of fields=comment. Something like this should work:

/rest/api/3/search?jql=project%3DSWPROJ&fields=comment
