Hi Shruti,

Please note not every FishEye/Crucible REST API method supports pagination, the ones that do support have it explicitely mentioned in the documentation. 

Let me know what URL are you trying to hit so I can clarify if pagination is supported for this endpoint or if there is alternative paginated endpoint that could be used instead. 

Hi, I tried limiting data while fetching repositories. Here's the query,


Inspite of applying limit=1, I'm getting all the list of repositories. I am facing same issue with other queries as well (Eg. users, revisionInfo etc).

note GET request to resource lists all the repositories, while GET request to similar resource retrieves a page of repositories.  The latter use paginated API.

Similary use to retrieve page of users etc.

Hope that helps

Hi Piotr,

It worked. Thanks a lot! :)
