I want to use a custom field in my Views REST export, but rather than having "nothing": "My custom text", I would like "mycustomtext": "My custom text". Is there a way to do this from within the UI?

1 Answer 1


Serializer settings: force using field & json

Show: fields

Show settings: type an alias for each field

Above settings are shown in the images below

    Despite “no code answer” requested, it’s also quite easy to provide your own Normalizer class if this doesn’t exactly suit.
