Difference in reponse total between postman and PowerBI

Vincent Klijs November 2, 2021

Greetings all,

Using the JIRA rest api I'm fetching all issue related data in PowerBI. I use the following call:"https://whyellow.atlassian.net/rest/api/3/search?" but I notice that the "total" field in the response is different when I do the call in Postman versus the same call in PowerBI ( in PowerBI I get around 30 less ... ). I use the same credentials for both, so I don't understand where the difference might come from. Any ideas?


kind regards,

Hi @Vincent Klijs 

Welcome to community !!

It is strange indeed. If you do the same call, it has to return same response. Postman returns the data in real time. What about the BI tool?

Good catch! It seems that PowerBI did cache previous results and the result I got was an old response. I'm still veryfying this, will accept the answer as soon as I have clarity on this :)
