In July 2020, the Get Records API's offset parameter will have an upper limit of 10,000.
Make sure to revise programs that retrieve records in bulk that may return more than 10,000 records by July 2020.
Currently, there are three main methods for retrieving records in bulk:
- Method 1: the seek method - used when the records are not sorted by any particular criteria. (i.e., the records are sorted just by the Record ID).
- Method 2: the Cursor API method - used when the records are sorted, and more than 10,000 records are expected to be retrieved.
- Method 3: the offset method - used when the records are sorted, and fewer than 10,000 records are retrieved.
This article will showcase how and when to use them.
