    Correct! You will only get a marker if there are more results to grab.

    Hi Ritika,

    The Box API documentation includes a request example in Java using the getAllEnterpriseUsers method.

    The fields parameter is optional.

    Iterable<BoxUser.Info> users = BoxUser.getAllEnterpriseUsers(api, true, null); 

    // Get marker
    String marker = ((BoxResourceIterable<BoxUser.Info>) users).getNextMarker();

    Hi Marie,

    If I have only 2 users in that case why I am getting next marker.

    Assumption : I should get next marker only when there are lot of users and the limit exceeds the no. of users at a time otherwise next marker should be null.

    Need some clarification here.

    Hi Alex Novotny

    Can you please share a java sdk method by which I can set limit while getting enterprise users?

    In api call I can see there is an option of limit, offset but not from java side.

    Currently Box Java SDK does not allow user to set limit when getting enterprise users.
    The API is designed this way that we are hiding marker/offset usage. You start by getting iterator over users:
    Iterable<BoxUser.Info> users = BoxUser.getAllEnterpriseUsers(api, true, null);
    now all the magic happens within SDK as you iterate over. So once your iterator  returns false it means that there are no more users.
    users.forEach(u -> System.out.println(u.getName()));
    should print two users if there are only those.
    If you want to start from some position you can specify marker:
    Iterable<BoxUser.Info> users = BoxUser.getAllEnterpriseUsers(api, true, 'position_to_start_from);
    I've checked why you are getting next marker from SDK and it is API behaviour. If API returns any results it returns next_marker . This field will not be returned only when there are no users returned.
