Find the total number of attachments in a page using REST API

Using the REST API - /api/content/{id}/child/attachment, how do I find the total number of attachments? 

I don't see a totalSize in the json response. Irrespective of the limit parameter value, the size of the result set is 200.

Using the UI, I can visually see the number Attachments (650) when looking at the page properties. 

Is there a way to get this number using REST API?

Dear @InfoSec ,

unfortunatelly there is no specific REST request for the amount of attachments of one page, but with GET /rest/api/content/{id}/child/attachment and reading the JSON entity "size" you get the number you want.

If not, you can still do pagination and count JSON array opjects.

So long

Note: If your array ends at 200 and you have more than 200 attachments, you discovered a bug ;)

I am also seeing that my array is ending at 200 even though I give a higher limit value.

How can this issue be resolved if this is a bug?
