Filter sharepoint list with rest API on lookup field

nainakarri asked:

Open original thread

I have a SharePoint list as below.

col1	col2	col3
India	Sudha	Yellow
Africa	Ajay	Green
America	Vijay	Red

col1 is a lookup field.
I want to use Rest API and filter the list on a col1 in such a way that even if i give part of the string, it should search the record.

I tried "'listname')/items?$expand=lookupcolumn&$select=Title,parentlookupcol/lookupcolumn&$filter=substringof('US2017 - 0002',lookupcolumn) 
", but no luck.

When i replace substring and use filter = lookup/col eq 'value' , i was able to search. But "eq" will look for complete string match which fails my requirement.

Appreciate your help.

Thanks in Advance

What I have tried:

", but no luck.
