Limit connection sync records returned

We wanted to perform a sample sync connection to return only one record result so our users could analyze the sample record and check which information is relevant or not. However, our team couldn’t find an easy way to do it using Airbyte API endpoints, we believe a limit parameter in the synchronization endpoint could be very useful.

Did anyone have a similar issue and found a workaround for this situation?

Hello there! You are receiving this message because none of your fellow community members has stepped in to respond to your topic post. (If you are a community member and you are reading this response, feel free to jump in if you have the answer!) As a result, the Community Assistance Team has been made aware of this topic and will be investigating and responding as quickly as possible.
Some important considerations that will help your to get your issue solved faster:

  • It is best to use our topic creation template; if you haven’t yet, we recommend posting a followup with the requested information. With that information the team will be able to more quickly search for similar issues with connectors and the platform and troubleshoot more quickly your specific question or problem.
  • Make sure to upload the complete log file; a common investigation roadblock is that sometimes the error for the issue happens well before the problem is surfaced to the user, and so having the tail of the log is less useful than having the whole log to scan through.
  • Be as descriptive and specific as possible; when investigating it is extremely valuable to know what steps were taken to encounter the issue, what version of connector / platform / Java / Python / docker / k8s was used, etc. The more context supplied, the quicker the investigation can start on your topic and the faster we can drive towards an answer.
  • We in the Community Assistance Team are glad you’ve made yourself part of our community, and we’ll do our best to answer your questions and resolve the problems as quickly as possible. Expect to hear from a specific team member as soon as possible.

Thank you for your time and attention.

Hi @MarcosWendell, there’s no straightforward way to do this and honestly I have not encountered this request before! Something you might try doing is running a full refresh sync on a small set of data, then adding a record to it and then running an incremental sync. If you delete that data from the full refresh, you will only be left with the data from the second sync. This definitely sounds like a useful feature and I’d encourage you to open a feature request on GitHub!
