List forms API limit

Hi,

We use the List forms API to export our data. According to the
documentation, the limit of records that can be exported at once is 1000:
https://wiki.commcarehq.org/display/commcarepublic/List+Forms

Assuming that we have more than 1000 records to export, what are the
options? the above link also mentions paging, could this be used in this
scenario?

Thanks,

Alex

Hi Alex,

You should be able to use paging parameters on the Form API to get more
than 1000 items.
*/form/limit=100 should give you the first hundred items
*/form/limit=100&offset=100 should give you items 100-200
*/form/limit=500&offset=1000 should give you items 1000-1500
etc.

Thanks,
Sheel
