With paged queries, you issue multiple requests that each retrieve a limited number of results. You would use a paged query, for example, if:

  • The size of the response to a single request would reduce the efficiency of the client. In this situation, you can use a paged query to prevent overloading the client. The client can process the results in each response before requesting additional data.
  • The application issuing the query handles a limited number of objects at a time. For example, an application that lists a given number of objects at a time on a web page would use a paged query in which each request returned that number of results.

The criteria for paged queries differ between object-based queries and operation-based queries.
