Select data to return from GET machines?

Is there a way to select specific data to return from a GET /MAAS/api/2.0/machines/ call? Rather than returning all data about some machines via filtering, which is inherent in the API, is there a way to return some data about all machines (say. hostname) via selecting?

The MAAS API is all or nothing right now. We’ve discussed adding this feature with GraphQL but don’t have any plans right now.

@pjonason, i moved your post to the “features” category, so that it will be recorded there. no promises, but at least it’s in our queue.
