GitHub REST API response missing field

Response from the REST API when calling the /user/starred endpoint is missing the topics field which should be expected, according to the documentation located here: Documentation

The example in the documentation looks like it uses a repo listing that has been generated where the mercy preview header has been passed in the request.

Please try adding the mercy preview header to your request. I’ve provide an example using curl below:

curl \
     -H "Accept: application/vnd.github.v3+json" \
     -H "Accept: application/vnd.github.mercy-preview+json" \
     -H "Authorization: token ${GITHUB_TOKEN}" \

for me it returns the topics field:

    "open_issues_count": 2,
    "license": null,
    "topics": [
    "forks": 0,

Thank you. That worked for me.
