Increase item limit to 5k - and return limit information in API
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Bump the limit for items in a list to 5k for each list per our discussion.

Also so we don't have to hard code this into the clients, can you return the limit in the API?

Not sure if it makes sense to return the 5k limit for each list, or if you have a better idea.

Event Timeline

Clients can fetch the Swagger spec for the API, we can put the limits in there somewhere.

Change 409712 had a related patch set uploaded (by Gergő Tisza; owner: Gergő Tisza):
[operations/mediawiki-config@master] Increase ReadingLists item limit to 5k

#952 exposes the maximum size in RESTBase in the Swagger spec under x-maxsize.

On the MediaWiki side (which is more reliable - per T180416 there is no way to share configuration so the numbers are simply manually copied over to the RESTBase API docs) the limits are included in the readinglists-config key of the [[|siteinfo response]].
