Learn how to paginate through data in Alloy's Unified API


Alloy's Unified API allows you to quickly paginate through large data sets with ease.

This section of the documentation explains how to navigate through large datasets using pagination with our API. Understanding and implementing pagination correctly is crucial for optimizing the performance of your API requests and improving the user experience by efficiently managing large sets of data.

Pagination Parameters

Our API uses two primary parameters to handle pagination: pageNumber and pageSize. These parameters allow you to control which portion of the data you receive, making data retrieval both manageable and efficient.

pageNumberIntegerIndicates the current page number of the results you wish to retrieve.1
pageSizeIntegerSpecifies the number of results per page. It allows for control over the volume of data returned in a single API call.50

Making a Paginated Request

Example Request

curl --location '
--header 'Authorization: Bearer YOUR_API_KEY' \
--header 'Accept: application/json'

This request would return the second page of results, with 30 items on the page.

Understanding the Response

The response to a paginated request will typically include the requested data. This might look like the following:

    "customers": [

Navigating Between Pages

To navigate through the pages, adjust the pageNumber parameter in your subsequent requests.
