Limit Parameter

The Limit query parameter is used to specify the maximum number of items of a resource collection to return in a response.

For example, to return only the first 3 EC2 instances in the /virtualMachines collection, send the following request:


The Veeam Backup for AWS REST API returns resources in the default order based on its own semantics. To sort or filter a collection before excluding results, use the Sort, SearchPattern or one of the filter query parameters. Note that the Sort, SearchPattern and filter parameters are applied before the Limit parameter, regardless of their position in the request. That is, a collection is first filtered or sorted, and then the top results are selected.
