Downloading Canvas Data Via API (Specifically Requests Table)

Question asked by Ron Nollen on Oct 5, 2018

I'm trying to build a local "requests" table by downloading all of the files associated with the table.  

 

I'm using the /file/byTable access point to retrieve the list of dumps/files associated with the requests table.  I'm getting dumps with sequence numbers that are less than the sequence number for the full (partial=false) in addition to dumps with sequence numbers higher than the full.

 

Can I ignore any dumps that have sequence numbers less than the full.  In other words to build the requests table, can I start with the dump (partial=false), and add dumps with sequence numbers higher than the full to build my requests table.

 

Thanks in Advance,

Ron.
