Get VisibleInMenu using CMS api



How can I get VisibleInMenu prop by calling {{baseUrl}}/api/episerver/v3.0/content/{{id}}/children?

In the response I can see many props but no VisibleInMenu

        "contentLink": {
            "id": 1742,
            "workId": 0,
            "guidValue": "a83d13df-acd6-4e24-bbbd-8ae61f06e2fb",
            "providerName": null,
            "url": "http://localhost:6666/test",
            "expanded": null
        "name": "Lorem",
        "language": {
            "link": "http://localhost:6666/main/test",
            "displayName": "svenska",
            "name": "sv"
        // ...

I'm trying to build a navigation component in the Next.JS/react by calling an Content Deliver Api v3.0 but without that information (VisibleInMenu) I'm unable to do it properly.

Try setting ContentApiOptions.IncludeMetadataPropertiesPreview to true in your configuration. This should bring the field forward.

Thanks mate! ❤ You have helped me a lot :) Seems like docs for it does not exist...

services.Configure<ContentApiOptions>(o =>
    // Makes api return content with all properties (eg VisibleInMenu)
    o.IncludeMetadataPropertiesPreview = true;
