Jira Align REST API Pagination Attribute Format

Using the Jira REST API's I can easily paginate the results, as it provides me a count of results returned, max results existing, and max results that can be returned at one time.


Example code for Jira:



We are looking to use the attributes:



It seems that we have a limit of 100 results from any of the Jira Align REST APIs.

We have searched the swagger Jira Align pages, and were unable to see any formatting for this type of pagination of results.  Expect the Portfolio Epics to grow well beyond 10,000 records, as we enter more data into the system. So, we need a way to only pull a limited set. This also applies to the User list.

So, me developer had to code the pulls, so that they pulled increments of 100, and when the final array returned an empty array, that is when he stopped.


Still it might be nice, if the REST APIs were to provide a total count, a count returned.

I have found this page:

and it provides some information on Basic Pagination.

Top: Return the first 10 Epics



Skip: Skip the first 521 epics and return all after



If my REST CALLs are limited to 100, and I am not given a total count, how would I know when to stop trying to pull, unless I am comparing all the data I pull?
