In my previous post SharePoint 2013: Get UserProfile Properties with REST API,
we saw how to fetch SharePoint UserProfile properties with the REST API.
The only thing missing in that post was, at the time there was no way to get Multiple UserProfile Properties for a Specific User i.e. if you had an account name of a user and wanted to fetch multiple custom or default UserProfile properties, you could not do that in a single REST call. You would have to resort to either making multiple REST calls using the GetUserProfilePropertyFor
When I wrote that post, SharePoint Online did not support REST API batching. Since then, it has been implemented and as a result we can get multiple Custom/OOB User Profile properties in a single REST call.
Here is my code showing how to do it:
Here are some other great resources on SharePoint REST API Batching:
