The $skip System Query Option is used to exclude from a response the first N items of a resource collection.
For example, to return a list of failover sites starting from the forth one in the /FailoverPlans collection, send the following request:
You can combine the $top and the $skip options to request a particular set of items. Note that the $skip option is applied before the $top option, regardless of its position in the request. That is, top results are selected from a collection where a set of items is already excluded.
VAO RESTful API returns resources in the default order based on its own semantics. To sort or filter a collection before excluding results, use the $orderby or $filter query options. Note that the $orderby and $filter options are applied before the $skip option regardless of their position in the request. That is, a collection is first filtered or ordered, and then the top results are excluded.
