How to programmatically get maxResults using c# & REST API ? Edited


On this page Changing maxResults parameter for Jira Cloud REST API, it is stated that "Since maxResults limits may change over time and vary for different API resources, we recommend that REST API clients programmatically confirm maxResults value when making the request".

How would I do this using c# & the REST API? At the moment, when I instantiate a rest client, I use

Atlassian.Jira.Jira jiraRestClient = Atlassian.Jira.Jira.CreateRestClient(jiraURL, jiraUserName, jiraPassword);

after this statement, debugging shows that jiraRestClient.MaxIssuesPerRequest is equal to 20, but by trial and error I can see that the maximum value that I could set this to and still have that maximum value honoured is 100.

How do I programmatically get this max upper limit of 100 other than by trial and error, given that your API spec says it can change over time and endpoint?
