This error message is indicating that the connector is encountering an issue when making a request to the API. The specific issue is that the _skip parameter in the request is set to a value larger than the maximum allowed value of 250000.

The _skip parameter is used to paginate the results of a query by skipping a certain number of rows in the response. For example, if you are requesting 100 rows at a time and want to retrieve the second page of results, you would set _skip to 100.

It looks like you are trying to skip more rows than the API allows, which is causing the request to fail with a status code of 400 and the error message “The skip you set is larger than the maximum skip for this resource (max_skip = 250000)”.

To resolve this issue, you will need to modify your request to set the _skip parameter to a value less than or equal to 250000. You may also want to consider modifying your query to return fewer results, as it seems like you are trying to retrieve a very large number of rows.

Hope this help!

Hi @sajarin ,
Yes that seems to be the issue. However, I have no control on the request that is made, it is part of the Airbyte developed connector. And yes I am trying to sync the whole data, which is quite large.
Would you please be able to file this as a bug ?
