Version 2 API: enumerating

The default value of skip is 0 (zero).


For example, to request the first 10 tags in the set:

For healthservices, tags and treatment functions the ordering of entities is fixed.

For opinions and responses, additional options are available.

Enumerating opinions and responses

Opinions are responses are returned in order of publication date, oldest first.

For opinions and responses you may wish to explicitly set ordering to oldest first or to newest first. To do so, use the DateOfPublicationOrder parameter:

DateOfPublicationOrder: set the sort order for opinions/responses to Ascending or Descending

PublishedAfter: filter the set of returned posts to only those with a publication date after the given date/time instant.
