When i want to get all information,for example,about category of post,i can get only name and id of category. But i want to get also description of category. Yes,i know,that i can do aditional http request,using category id,but why for author i have this information,but for category and may be for tag - not? Please fix this issue in your rest api. Also i have field links,but i don't want to have this in json. Why in json i get it? You can see example of this issues in link https://опиши-мне.рф/wp-json/wp/v2/posts/1935?_fields=id,title&_embed=author,wp:term. Thank you for your reply.

This is the meta trac. If you have issues with the REST API and the data it returns, then that is part of the WordPress core and would go on the core.trac instead.

However, the category data would not be returned with the post because it's not information that is about the post, but about the category. This seems unlikely to get any traction, since the purpose of having them separate is so that you don't request excessive amounts of data all at once.
