Issue/Introduction



We are performing a Lookback API call and receiving this warning:

Warnings":["Max page size limited to 100 when fields=true"]

We also see our returned records capped at 100 despite that our pagesize is higher. 

What does this warning mean?

Environment

Release:
Component: ACSAAS

Resolution

Lookback API will return no more than 100 results if your fetch argument is set to 'true' (i.e: .. &fetch=true ... )
In that case this will take over your pagesize and return only 100 results irrespective of your pagesize argument.

The reason to avoid the query timeout considering the amount of returned data (if all fields are included when fetch is 'true').

A way to avoid it, is to request specific set of fields and set the 'fetch' argument to these specific fields (comma delimited string).
