Infoman Search limits

Technote (FAQ)


We are performing Searches and have noticed limits on the data returned. For SE, SRC and TSX the limit is 32767. Can these limits be increased? Can the API search limits be increased?


The Search command is limited to a maximum of 32760 hits, whether entered by a user, an SRC, or a TSX. There is no way around this limit.
The API search inquiry transaction is not affected by the Session Parameter SORTPFX N2 limit. The API search results is controlled by the SORTPFX N1 value, or other API specific parameters, but the maximum number of results that can be returned by the API is 2,147,483,647. To get that number of results the API session must be initialized using a session member that does not specify a value for the SORTPFX N1 parameter.
