Expand Attribute in Paragon API

Hello, We are currently making calls to our Strategic MLS Alliance Paragon API feed and a question came up I'm hoping you can help with. Do you allow the use of the expand attribute in a request URL? We are using the following Request URL and are getting a 400 error. gt 2022-06-24&$top=100&$count=true&$orderby=ModificationTimestamp&$expand=Media

Additionally, we have not seen documentation around the Paragon API. Could you please provide any API documentation our team could reference?

We do not currently support the expand attribute.

Thank you for confirming. How would you suggest we download the media URLs for listings?

I think you just change Property to Media in your URL.

If we change Property to Media then we do not get the listingID that belongs to the MediaURL. We only get the MediaURLs which is not the only thing we want. Is it possible to get MediaURL from the Property resource?

It should be the ResourceRecordKeyNumeric value that links back to the Property it is associated with.

One more thing, we've noticed that you don't provide @odata.nextLink when we request the listing data. For example, the following request does not return @odata.nextLink which usually tells us to go to the next set of records. gt 2022-09-19T00:00:00Z and ModificationTimestamp lt 2022-10-26T14:17:42Z)&$orderby=ModificationTimestamp

Is this something that will be implemented in the future? If it won't be added, how do we know if we have reached the last page of records?

It is in the queue to be added sometime in the future. But no definite date yet.
I would assume that if you request the next batch and nothing is returned, you are done.
You can also pass $count=true to have it return the record count and use that to determine when you are done.
