skip Parameter

You can use the skip query parameter to exclude the first N collection items from a response body.

For example, to return a list of sessions starting from the third one in the /sessions collection, send the following request:


You can combine the limit and the skip query parameters to request a particular set of items. Note that the skip parameter is applied before the limit parameter, regardless of the parameter position in the request. That is, top results are selected from a collection where a set of items is already excluded.

The Veeam Backup & Replication REST API returns resources in the default order based on its own semantics. To sort or filter a collection before excluding results, use sort and filter parameters. Note that sort and filter parameters are applied before the skip parameter, regardless of their position in the request. That is, a collection is first filtered or sorted, and then the top results are excluded.
