Trying to $expand multiple levels of an item's children. I have tried queries with //* at the end, but that didn't work, for example: /sitecore/api/ssc/aggregate/content/Items('/sitecore/content/Site/Editorials//*')

That didn't work, as I kept getting errors like : A potentially dangerous Request.Path value was detected from the client (*)

Turns out we can use multiple levels of $expand, or even supply $level of depth,


However, $level doesn't seem to allow expanding FieldValues for all levels, so I ended up having multiple $expand like so :

/sitecore/api/ssc/aggregate/content/Items('/sitecore/content/MySite/MyContent')/Children?$expand=Children($expand=Children, FieldValues), FieldValues
