How can we get a count of files or count of shared links ?

Explorer | Level 3

Hi,

 

I need to get count of records present in retrieve calls like, list_folder call or list_shared_links. 

Is there any way we could get a count from these APIs?

And Is there any API that gives us the total count of records present in the database?

 

Any forum links or any pointers on this would be of great help.

 

Thanks,

Akshata

Hi Akshata, no, unfortunately, the API doesn't offer a way to get the counts like this, but I'll be sure to pass this along as a feature request. You'd need to page through and count the results to get the total number.
