Very new to Drupal (running 8.5.6) and inherited some code I need to tweak. We invoke the API request like so (which may wrap the Drupal API..I am not sure)
I get a fairly large JSON object returned. There is a view I created called myview that is returned in the json with the name of view_35. I have two other test instances where I created the same view by name referencing the same fields. But in one instance the name is returned in the JSON as view_38 and in the other view its view_31. I noticed that I could alias the fields. Is there a feature like that for views? In other words, I want to name the view so it can be consistently referenced in the code that consumes the JSON. The client side of the app that invokes the api is Angular, if that makes any difference.
