Field Type Required Description
pagination Object Optional An object defining paging options for the request.
Paginiation Object
Field Type Required Description
pageSize Number Optional The number of results to request.
pageToken String Optional The value of the 'next' or 'previous' fields from an earlier request.
Data
Field Type Required Description
order String Optional Allows the results to be sorted by creation date. Possible values are ASC for ascending results, or DESC for descending results. The default value is DESC.
sortBy String Optional Options by which the results can be sorted. Currently the only option is CREATE_TIME, which allows the results to be sorted by creation timestamp, using the order field.
