Limiting the maximum supported value for StartRow to 50,000
We’re making some changes to SharePoint Online Search. To continue to provide a high performance search experience, we’re limiting the maximum supported value StartRow to 50,000.
- Timing: Starting late February 2021 through late May 2021
- Action: review and assess for your organization
How this will affect your organization:
As part of this configuration change, users who run queries using the StartRow parameter (at rest API) with values exceeding 50,000 will be throttled. All queries using StartRow (< 50,000) – will not be impacted.
What you need to do to prepare:
To not be throttled, review StartRow parameters and limit to (< 50,0000). For search results (> 50,000), please follow Pagination for large result sets instead of the StartRow approach.
