Pagination Parameters

Limit and Skip parameters can be used to control the number of results returned and to skip a certain number of results, respectively.

limit (optional)

The limit parameter allows you to control the maximum number of items returned in a single paginated request. It determines the page size, helping you manage the amount of data retrieved. By setting a limit, you can request a specific number of results per page, which is useful for optimizing data transfer and rendering performance.


  • limit: An integer value representing the maximum number of items to include in the response.

  • Acceptable values: A positive integer greater than zero.


To request 20 items per page, you would include limit=20 in your request.

skip (optional)

The skip parameter allows you to skip a specified number of items in the paginated result set. This parameter is useful for navigating to a specific page of results by skipping a certain number of items from the beginning of the dataset.


  • skip: An integer value representing the number of items to skip in the result set before returning data.

  • Default value: 0 (i.e., no items are skipped).

  • Acceptable values: A non-negative integer.


To retrieve results starting from the 21st item (assuming a page size of 20), you would include skip=20 in your pagination request.

Pagination Flow
  • Use the limit parameter to specify how many items you want per page.

  • Use the skip parameter to navigate to a specific page by skipping a certain number of items.

  • Combine limit and skip to paginate through the entire result set systematically.


  • Be cautious when setting large values for limit, as it can result in heavy data transfer and increased response times.

  • Ensure that the skip value is within the bounds of your result set to avoid errors.
