Migrating to Cursor Pagination

Learn how to enable cursor pagination for response from Finix's API.


To migrate your requests to use Cursor Pagination:

  1. Send a versioning header with your requests. For more info about including a versioning header, see Versioning .
  2. When you switch to a version that supports pagination, all object responses remain the same, but the page metadata changes:

Old

Copy
Copied
    "page": {
        "offset": 0,
        "limit": 20,
        "count": 1241393
    }

New

Copied
    "page": {
        "limit": 20,
        "next_cursor": "TRhT44rAqsCQaRQqaEGhHvn9"
    }

Cursor-Based Pagination Requests

Here's an example of a request that uses cursor-based pagination to fetch the last three submitted transfers.
