What does total in /notifications represent?
I ran it.
The result was items in Common Wrapper Object was array of 24 items where as total was 4.

This is a bug. I've tagged your question accordingly.

total, in the wrapper object, should always be the length of the items array, after concatenating all pages of results.

When I run /2.2/notifications?pagesize=100&filter=!*L6X1NqVdlFobvlv, I get 4 pages of results, currently totaling 382 items:

"Totally" Bogus!

total remains fixed at 77. This is clearly a bug, total should be 382 in my case.

  • I think they may be telling about the types of notification_type.

  • No, there are only 15 notification_types. Commented Jul 17, 2015 at 11:32
  • I meant in your response. How many types of notification_types are in your response?

  • In my particular response there were 6 types of notification_type returned. What does that have to do with anything? Commented Jul 17, 2015 at 11:42
  • I was guessing. Why do total = 4 comes when items != 4?

    Why? Because it's a bug! There could be a mistake in the SQL, or an uninitialized variable, or any of a hundred things that can cause it. Only someone with developer access could know for sure. Commented Jul 17, 2015 at 18:41
