$expand=all has already expand all fields, but it doesn't show the empty fields in response. If you type a value for the field you want to get, you will see it as expect in response.

According to your screenshot, 61092 is a Product Backlog Item. The Rest API URL you use can only get the detailed information of the work item 61092 itself, it cannot get the detailed information about the work items that linked to 61092.

You have to use One-hop Query to get all the tasks related to it and then get the detailed data for each task returned. Refer to this link for details: Get Work Items.

You need to login account before you can post.
