Issue/Introduction

When running the REST API /{client_id}/executions GET request, only a handful of executions are returned in the json Response when more are expected.

For example, for an object that has run 20 times so far, the expected Response is:

2020-09-23 13:41:49             Response - application/json
2020-09-23 13:41:49             Start response pattern

The actual response has less than the actual amount (in this case only returning 1):

Cause

{client}/executions by itself includes only non-deactivated executions

Resolution

To include all executions of an object, use the query parameter "include_deactivated" with a value of "true".  This will include all executions of an object including deactivated objects.

The GET Request will look something like this:

2020-09-23 13:41:48             Request:GET http://server:8089/ae/api/v1/0101/executions?name=AE_REST_API.GET_EXECUTIONS&include_deactivated=true
