How to use filters and pagination in the Regate API


This section will explain how to use filters in the Regate API. Filtering helps you retrieve only the resources you need with your request.

How it works

Use the filter object to set a query parameter when making a GET request.

The query parameter name should be filter[attributename_operator], where:

  • attributename is the name of the attribute, on which you want to filter the result (state, amount, currency etc.)
  • operator is the operator you want to compare by. See Allowed operators below for more details.

The syntax should be as follows:

GET /api/endpoint?filter[attributename_operator]=attributevalue&filter[attribute2_operator2]=attribute2value

Allowed operators

The following operators can be used for filtering purposes:

eqEqual to
not_eqNot equal to
gtGreater than
gteqGreater than or equal to
ltLess than
lteqLess than or equal to
inReturns all records where a field is within a specified list. The list can be defined by specifying a range of values (e.g. 1..5) or a list of values (e.g. 1,2,3,4,5).
not_inReturns all records where a field is not within a specified list.

Example 1 - Retrieve only recorded invoices

Let's say you want to retrieve only the invoices that are already recorded. You need the state attribute and the eq operator, and you need to set the value as recorded:

curl --request GET \
     --url '[state_eq]=recorded' \
     --header 'accept: application/json'

Example 2 - Filter by invoice amount and currency

If you want to see all invoices with net amounts of 500 EUR or more, you need to filter by two different attributes - currency and net_amount_cents.

Since you are looking for an exact match for the currency, you need to use the eq operator for it. For the amount, however, you need to use gteq instead.

curl --request GET \
     --url '[currency_eq]=EUR&filter[net_amount_cents_gteq]=50000' \
     --header 'accept: application/json'


Limit number of results

To set a limit for the returned objects per page, set the per_page parameter to the desired number. The default limit for returned objects is 10 and the maximum is 1000.


curl --request GET \
     --url '' \
     --header 'accept: application/json'

Select specific page of results

When the number of objects is too large to be returned in a single response page, you might want to retrieve a list starting from a specific page. Set the value of the page parameter to page you want to retrieve. The offset starts from 1.


curl --request GET \
     --url '' \
     --header 'accept: application/json'

Pagination in the response body

Whenever you are making a GET request, the response body will include two objects:

  • links - Contains information on pagination
  • data - Contains the retrieved objects

The links object contains three attributes, indicating specific URLs to call for different pages of results:

  • self - The URL the current call was made to.
  • first - The URL to call for the first page of results.
  • prev - The URL to call for the previous page of results.
  • next - The URL to call for the next page of results.
  • last - The URL to call for the the last page of results.


Here's an example of a links object after retrieving the third of 10 total pages of invoice objects:

  "links": {
    "self": "",
    "first": "",
    "prev": "",
    "next": "",
    "last": ""
  "data": [{
