I need to detect via REST API, which fields have been enabled for Chatter object feed tracking.
Just to be clear it is the setup option found here: Setup > Customize > Chatter > Feed Tracking
Finding out whether or not the object is enabled is quite easy. This is part of the describe result data when making a request to any objects describe endpoint such as this:
This returns JSON where the
feedEnabled property tells me whether the object has been enabled.
But if you dig into individual fields, they do not appear to have an attribute in their meta-describe attributes that corresponds to feed tracking.
I also don't see an object that appears to hold this data that can be queried. But I'm still looking.
As a fall-back I might consider a solution using Apex, if there is a way to obtain this information there.
