CMSMLS Photo Count Mis-Match

While running through our QA process, we found that there seems to be an issue with the photo count not reflecting the number of available photos for the listing for the Central MS MLS RETS feed.

Examples: MLS ID: 337050 L_PictureCount = 19

When we query for the photo in position 19, we are getting a "No Object Found" message. Other sites appear to have a photo in position 19. We are also seeing that other sites have different orders for photos 2 and 3.

MLS ID: 340860 L_PictureCount: 16

When we query for positions 3, 6, 15, and 16, we are getting a "No Object Found" message. Other sites appear to have “extra” photos in positions 13 through 16.

MLS ID: 340535 L_PictureCount: 38

When we query for positions 4, 5, 36, and 37, we are getting a "No Object Found" message. Other sites appear to have “extra” photos in positions 35 through 38.

Can you look into this and verify that there are no issues with the feed for accuracy of the photo count on the listings and no issues with photos being retrieved via the getObject protocol? Thanks!

Unfortunately Paragon allows gaps in the photo sequence.
In both of the ones you mentioned, the photo count is correct but there are gaps (empty slots).
I would suggest you either use the Media resource to get the URLs and use the URL to pull the actual images.
Or if you are using GETOBJECT, instead of requesting individual files, "1234:*" to get the full set for the listing.
If you are using GETOBJECT, I would suggest setting Location=1 to have it return the URL anyway.
Sometime in the future, we will be removing the ability to download actual image files to better support caching.

Your suggestions on how to make the GETOBJECT retrieval work correctly appears to have resolved the issue. Thanks!
