2. Run the query$format=json&paging=snapshot$skiptoken&$select=categoryId,todoEntryId,userId,lastModifiedDateTime,createdDate,linkUrl,todoEntryName,categoryLabel,wfRequestNav/url,wfRequestNav/createdBy,wfRequestNav/wfRequestUINav/deeplink,wfRequestNav/wfRequestUINav/todoSubjectLine,wfRequestNav/wfRequestUINav/todoSubjectLine&$expand=wfRequestNav/wfRequestUINav&$filter=todoEntryId eq 'XXXXX' 

3. linkurl is Null in the response.


The API user is lacking permissions.


This is expected behavior, missing Permission for the API user.

API user should have permission of "Manage Workflow Request". Only Admin user who has "Manage Workflow Requests" permission can see this Linkurl under wfRequestNav.
