The developer documentation specifies that several of the REST methods returning collections can be paged using some matrix parameters (https://developer.yahoo.com/social/rest_api_guide/partial-resources.html#paging-collection). However, I haven't actually been able to make this work. For instance, the following two URLs both return my total list of school profiles (2 total):
I would expect the second URL to only return the second of my two schools, but it returns both. Has anyone else experienced this? Can someone from Yahoo comment on whether this feature is actually implemented?
You are absolutely right - I had a similar experience on other platforms so let me apologize for the lack of response. I saw your message a few days after you posted it and ran some code tests to verify what was happening. I was able to replicate your issue but wasn't able to find a solution for you. I intended to get back to this post but it got buried I'm afraid.
I'm going to send a note to myself to check on my code samples at work in the morning and see if I can get any further with it. If ever you don't hear from us in a few days please do as you just did and post back - we'll do our best to help.
I'll let you know as soon as I have something for you.
I tried what I could think of to get this to return a subset of data but had no luck - same thing as before. I unfortunately don't have a working sample for you but I will be filing a platform bug for the social platform folks.
Thank you for your patience and for letting us know. - Jon
