Merge does not currently enforce a max payload size in our API responses. If you are concerned that your API calls may be returning excessively large payloads, there are a few steps you can take to slim down those responses!
Use encoding - Merge supports gzip, deflate, and br compression
Decrease your page size - the default page size is 30, with a max of 100
Limit use of the expand parameter - the expand parameter will increase payload size on most Merge objects, especially if you expand on multiple sub-objects
include_remote_data=truein queries - remote_data returns the original raw response from the third-party API and can increase payload sizes drastically.
If you have concerns about payload size, please reach out to us at [email protected] to discuss your concerns!
