Which reference are you referring to? The reference on doesn't appear to list this as a valid query parameter. While you can set it on a post, this is not the same as the collection query parameters.

  • Summary changed from REST API Post format=video to REST API: Allow querying posts by post format
  • Type changed from defect (bug) to feature request
  • Version changed from 4.7.2 to 4.7

Filtering by post format could be a nice enhancement, but as Ryan noted, this parameter is currently only supported for reading and editing individual posts. @sba7elfol can you give us some more information about your use case?

The WP_Query docs have an example of querying the post_format taxonomy - third example in the Taxonomy Parameters section.

Currently it would be possible to insert these extra query parameters in a plugin or theme using the 'rest_post_query' filter.

+1 on adding support for format as a collection args, and building the tax query for it.
