Can anyone explain why limit here has no effect? Still get 25 results every time. Also tried 'api.Contact.get' => array(array('limit' => 1000))

Using offset to recurse through the set works but is a nuisance.

 require_once $_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'] . '/wp-content/plugins/civicrm/civicrm.settings.php';
 require_once $_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'] . '/wp-content/plugins/civicrm/civicrm/CRM/Core/Config.php';
 $config = CRM_Core_Config::singleton( );
 require_once $_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'] . '/wp-content/plugins/civicrm/civicrm/api/api.php';
 $result = civicrm_api3('Membership', 'get', array(
    'membership_type_id' => "$level",
    'limit' => 1000,
    'api.Contact.get' => array(),

You need to use options.limit to make this work.

options.limit : The maximum number of records to return. You can make this unlimited by setting the value to 0.


$result = civicrm_api3('Membership', 'get', array(
  'membership_type_id' => "$level",
  'options' => array('limit' => 1000),

Get more details on the different parameters you can use under options.

Also check : How do I get more than 25 records from the API?

  • Thank you. For some dim reason I thought what I was passing was the options array... Much obliged. Commented Dec 14, 2015 at 15:11
