Description Kurt Seifried 2014-10-27 23:56:02 UTC
Aaron Patterson of Red Hat reports:

If the REST API is going to support a filter, that should be converted to an 
ActiveRecord where clause - where it should be safer.  In general, it would be 
good to understand why we offer SQL filters on the REST API because I do not 
think they should be exposed.
