nextPageKey syntax?

Sorry new to Dynatrace so perhaps a silly question...
Does anyone have an example of using curl and the Rest API with the "nextPageKey" parameter to fetch more than 1000 results when pulling down metrics?

nextPageKey you should add via query parameter. So there isn'y any magic here 🙂 just add https://uri?nexyPageKey=value

This value you should read from previous response.

Thank you Sebastian!

I can see that from the API Explorer as well, but still not quite wrapping my head around it. Do I need to add a header parameter that first specifies what the key is (in a similar way to adding the authorisation key) then follow that with nextPageKey=(value I just put in the header)?


No, you don't need. Just add nextPageKey to url as in my example. Nothing more. First request you can execute without this parameter (you will see value for it in response). Than read this value from first response (and all next) and just add it to url.

Sorry I am still being thick I think. What do I put in for "value" in nextPageKey=value - or just use the word value not an actual value?


Value is string that you receive from previous request. You should put there next page indicator returned in response. Treat value as placeholder here 🙂

Thank you! Now back to learning enough scripting to parse that into the next request.

New at all this, many thanks for your help.


If you will have any extra questions, please ask 🙂

Hello all
Hello @skrystosik, i dont understand well

What is the exact value to put?

 

And what is the parameter if I have more than @ pages (2500 results for example)

 

Thanks for your help.

@Malaik In the current results, you have a nextPageKey value in the JSON response. You just need to put this value into URL query parameter named nextPageKeyto fetch the next page of the resultset.

Thanks @Julius_Loman Yes done

But the documentation is not well done because we must to omit also the optional options.

I used it, but the result was return a count of 3500 but only 500 items was in the json

 

Have a good day.

Which is the "nextPageKey" from this response?

You don't have a nextPageKey in the result, since all the items were returned in the response already. nextPageKey is present if the result could not fit the response (too many results).
