REST timeline API endpoint returns inconsistent data?

Bernard Horan Sep 03, 2018


Could you provide a description of the data contained in the JSON response from the 



For example, this data seems inconsistent:

{"success":true,"error":"","size":2,"totalSize":0,"maxViews":2,"results":[{"formattedViewDate":"Jun 05, 2018","viewDate":1528182000000,"uniqueUsers":0,"views":0},{"formattedViewDate":"Sep 03, 2018","viewDate":1536044399999,"uniqueUsers":0,"views":0}],"total":2,"_links":{"base":"","context":"/confluence"}}

The values for maxViews and total are both 2, whereas the results array shows that there were no views.

Hi Bernhard 


I'm from bitvoodoo and first sorry that we didn't seen this question here, don't wait in the future and contact us directly at :-) 

It seems to be correct that you are confused about this {{maxView}} parameter. I created a ticket to clearify this and to change this if it's not needed. 

I suspect, that the maxView parameter is just a counter of maxEntries within the timeline  and because we fill the timeline with 0 values at some points so that the graph is more specific this miscount happens.

I opened a ticket to follow up this issue, just watch it 


Btw: Because we have birthday we offer some of our apps for free (including Viewtracker too )

Hi Bernhard 

We already checked it and we will remove the maxView property in that response.

Thank you
