How can I get the tags which are required, (fulfills_required = true) for each site?

Like order/filter the tags route to show the fulfills_required tags first?

  • there is now the api.stackexchange.com/docs/required-tags method but i cannot get it to return any results. Feb 12, 2012 at 17:48
  • Have you been using it against stackoverflow? Because it doesn't have any required tags :)

    Since this is now a part of v2.0 of the API, I am marking this as [status-completed]. Feb 12, 2012 at 20:25

the original question was apparently for V1.

in V2 we now have https://api.stackexchange.com/docs/required-tags

the request: https://api.stackexchange.com/2.0/tags/required?order=desc&sort=popular&site=stackapps will return required tags
