I'm trying to build a custom connector for an API that returns results in pages. How would I create a GET action to follow all pages, if there is more than 1 page returned?
Results from the API which return collections of objects are paginated, ie. split up into pages. We use a system which is compliant with the proposed RFC-5988 standard for web linking.
The Link header contains the URLs for the first, previous, next and last pages of the collection being returned. The Total header contains the total number of records in the collection, not the total number of pages. (The total number of pages is found in the URL for the last page.) These headers can help simplify your client code. As you may have noticed, we tell the API which page to return with a page query parameter. Similarly, we can request more items per page with a per_page parameter, up to a maximum of 100. The default is 25 records per page.
I suppose that would work, would I lose access to the GUI dynamic content field selection if it is now pulling from an array variable? Not a big deal as I can work with expressions, but would be nicer to keep to GUI.
