A bug in REST API search endpoint pagination.

Hello,

We are using the Trello Rest API in our BigPicture plugin. We noticed, that some cards from the endpoint GET /1/search appear on cards_page=0 as well as cards_page=1. Duplicated cards are nondeterministic. We use the following requests:

https://api.trello.com/1/search?query=is:open+created:100000+sort:created&modelTypes=cards&cards_limit=500&cards_page=0&cards_fields=&card_list=true&card_members=true&idBoards=5f5b2321f3b21b1abcf7fba5

https://api.trello.com/1/search?query=is:open+created:100000+sort:created&modelTypes=cards&cards_limit=500&cards_page=1&cards_fields=&card_list=true&card_members=true&idBoards=5f5b2321f3b21b1abcf7fba5

As @Iain Dooley mentioned, it'd be better to post this in the developer forum: https://community.developer.atlassian.com/. You're likely to find more API experts over there.

It sounds like there is a bug and I'll look into that.

As a workaround, any reason not to ask for all of the cards from the board directly? The search endpoint is better-suited to looking for cards matching a query across a set of boards. It doesn't look like you're using a query nor searching more than one board. I believe it'd be much more performant to make a request to the board's cards nested resource: https://developer.atlassian.com/cloud/trello/rest/api-group-boards/#api-boards-id-checklists-post

@Albert Cieślak I can verify this is occurring, I took this code:

https://gist.github.com/iaindooley/132d78cf547af7aa219c8302cdbb19cf

and ran it in BenkoBot here:

https://app.benkobot.com/

and it produced this output:

I think you should report this over at:

https://community.developer.atlassian.com/

Feel free to reference my example as well to corroborate your report, this definitely seems like a bug in the API because you would expect results throughout all the pages of a single board search to be unique.
