REST API how to handle boards with more then 1000 widgets?

Hi

We have a board which is bigger then 1000 widgets. The List Widget (https://developers.miro.com/reference#get-board-widgets-1) has a limit of 1000.

 

We tried the option to use the filteroption and get only the FRAMES and then load all the children by the https://developers.miro.com/reference#get-board-widget But.. (as expected) we get the   "message" : "Request rate limit exceed",  

 

We can put more time for calling the 1000+ times on the webservice, but that does not seem ideally. But maybe there is an other way?

 

As an idea… Is it possible to add a REST service, which can get multiple Widgets by multiple ids?  So as a parameter a list of Ids to get from the boar?

 

Best regards,

Hello @Richard121212! thank you for your feedback.
That is indeed a problem, the current endpoint for widgets is limited by 1000 widgets only.
The pagination for this endpoint should be fixed in the upcoming Platform release.

Ps. as addition, a service which only gets the data/children of 1 frame would also be very welcome.

Hello everyone,

Just a quick note to let you know that we have not forgotten about this issue. Pagination for widgets will be available in the next release of the platform, which will remove the 1000 widget limitation.

Unfortunately, I cannot give you an exact date for the next platform release. I can only tell you that we are actively working on it.

 

Thank you for your patience.

 

Kind regards,

 

Daniela

Hi,

 

The team is working on improving this behavior and many other updates regarding the REST API. I cannot share any date yet but you will hear about it soon. Regarding the 1000 widgets limitation, it will most probably be a few months. I will let you know as soon as we have more visibility on a release date or a beta version available.

 

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Hey, it’s pretty frustrating not having any visibility of when the next version of the api is being released.  

Makes planning and customer conversations impossible.   It’s been 9 months since Miro said

“should be fixed in the upcoming platform release”
