Sorry, I would have left a comment on the other question, but I don't have enough reputation.
I have the same problem as in this question: How to specify many ids and their variable name in a REST API request?
I have a big list of 800+ employees. (I have to show them all at once. It's required by the customer.)
The user can select any number of those employees and move to the next step in the workflow, where I have to fetch some additional informations based on their UUIDs.
My question: should I
- send multiple GET requests, each with a limited amount of ids in the urls query parameter and join the responses back together in the frontend? (When I request too many ids at once, the request is blocked, because the header is too big).
- misuse a POST request and send all IDs in the body
Or is there another way?
Thank you for your time.
