How to do pagination on JIRA Rest api ?

I am currently working on iOS app and want to show all the issues reported by me and i am currently using the below rest api -

but it returns all the issues that are reported by me , Now i only want to show first 10 issues in the app and then when the user scrolls down it should load the next batch of issues on the app , How can i do it ? Do i need to add any filters for the above api ? Please let me know

Use the startAt and maxResults values as appropriate. I wanted to give sample links but the spam filter is not allowing it.

You can have startAt = 0 and maxResults = 10 for the first call. startAt = 10 and maxResults = 10 for the next 10 results and so on.

Precisely the correct way to do it. We do it in all our scripts.

Okay thanks and adding to that can i add something like "/page?limit=5" which confluences uses for pagination ? does JIRA support the same "page" filter like confluence or should i go ahead with the above answer startAt & maxResults ?

@Jobin Kuruvilla [Go2Group] Can you please help me with the above question ? thanks

/page?limit won't work with REST API. You need to use startAt and maxResults.

When I try using the query parameters maxResults or startAt, I get the below error:

"Field 'maxResults' does not exist or you do not have permission to view it."

By default I get just the first 50 results and I need to workaround the Pagination in order to fetch all the results. 


Did you ever figure this out? I'm having the same problem :/

Just to note (I know the topic is old): maxResults is the parameter you pass in the http query. In response you get "total" field with number of all records within query range. So when parsing JSON result search for a "total" key.

Hope this helps.

maxResults is a query parameter, not a JQL-related keyword.

Also, if you are running these commands from curl, try url encoding your string. For example = is %3D & is %26. It helped get my tests working.
