Is there any api to find Classification display name with respect to report?

We tried with the Entity - Get Classifications Api but in that we only got the Formal name not Display name.

    Hi @Savio Vegnesa ,

    Thank you for posting query in Microsoft Q&A Platform.

    At this moment from REST API we can only get Classification type Name only. We cannot get display name of it.

    Below are the two REST APIs that helps you to get to Classification details. We can get classification TypeName but not display name at this moment.

    Get Classification REST API:
    Documentation link:
    Sample Response:

      "lastModifiedTS": "1",  
      "entityGuid": "9347abc5-7b86-4b82-a1e2-ad77c7c3cac3",  
      "entityStatus": "ACTIVE"  

    Get Classifications REST API:
    Documentation link:
    Sample Response:

      "list": [  
          "entityGuid": "67d26de6-771d-1a2d-cb2b-dec4dbd2a9bd"  
      "startIndex": 0,  
      "pageSize": 1,  
      "totalCount": 1,  
      "sortType": "NONE"  

    I encourage you to submit feedback for same in below feedbacks portal. Product team closely monitor feedbacks and consider them for future releases. Thank you.

    Hope this helps. Please let me know if any further queries.
