SAP FSM API Pagination Restrictions - Action Required

Dear Partners & Customers

We've received a message from SAP regarding the SAP FSM API and a pagination restriction which will be introduced on 1st of November 2020. Check out the docs regarding this new restriction here.

Following is the complete message from SAP:



At this point, there are no restrictions on pagination in Query API and Data API v4 - it is possible to request a page of any size. This may have significant performance implications in the event a very large page is requested.

According to our logs your FSM tenant account has a custom client application, web container and/or integration service, which currently makes API calls requesting pages of large size.

Please be informed that a few non-backwards compatible restrictions will be introduced in QueryApi and DataApi 4 on 1st of November 2020, which potentially affect your custom developed services and integrations.
In essence the following restrictions will apply:

  • Maximum page size will be limited to 1000 objects
  • Maximum number of objects retrievable via standard pagination will be limited to 100,000 objects

We kindly ask to you to identify all cases where a custom application, web container or integration does API requests with pageSize greater than 1000 objects as well as cases when more than 100,000 objects are retrieved from the API using standard pagination (using page=X&pageSize=Y). Then, depending on the outcome, take one of the following actions:

  • If there are less than 1000 results expected to be returned for the API request, the easiest course of action would be to set pageSize to a value of 1000 or less.
  • If there are more than 1000 but less than 100,000 results expected to be returned, then iterate using standard pagination mechanism (page=1, page=2, page=3, etc.).
  • If there are more than 100,000 results expected to be returned from the API than iterate using keyset pagination .

Further details on upcoming changes and contact information can be found here.
