Website Catalog as well as Catalog API not giving results after PageNumber 34


#1

Describe the bug. Describe what is happening when the bug occurs. Describe what you would normally expect to occur.

  • Whenever I try to use the Catalog API and go past PageNumber 34 with ResultsPerPage set to 30, it doesn’t return anything. When I try doing the same thing on the Website Catalog, it also breaks. I would expect the catalog to continue returning results. This seems to be a hard limit, because setting ResultsPerPage to 42 makes it break at PageNumber 25.

How often does the bug happen (Everytime/sometimes/rarely)? What are the steps that reproduce the bug? Please list them in very high detail. Provide simple example places that exhibit the bug and provide description of what you believe should be the behavior.

  • It happens everytime. Below are some Catalog API links for various Categories at page 34 and at page 35, as well as screenshots for the standard Catalog. The screenshots have plugins installed, however I did test this without the plugins and I get the same results.

Some Examples

Page 34:

https://search.roblox.com/catalog/json?Category=11&Subcategory=19&IncludeNotForSale&Direction=2&ResultsPerPage=30&PageNumber=34

https://search.roblox.com/catalog/json?Category=2&IncludeNotForSale&Direction=2&ResultsPerPage=30&PageNumber=34

https://search.roblox.com/catalog/json?Category=1&IncludeNotForSale&Direction=2&ResultsPerPage=30&PageNumber=34


Page 35:

https://search.roblox.com/catalog/json?Category=11&Subcategory=19&IncludeNotForSale&Direction=2&ResultsPerPage=30&PageNumber=35

https://search.roblox.com/catalog/json?Category=2&IncludeNotForSale&Direction=2&ResultsPerPage=30&PageNumber=35

https://search.roblox.com/catalog/json?Category=1&IncludeNotForSale&Direction=2&ResultsPerPage=30&PageNumber=35


I’ve searched around the Forum and I can’t seem to find this reported anywhere, so I apologize in advance if someone already posted this.


Catalog API doesn't work correctly
Obtain accessory catalog information past page 34?

I can confirm this bug. Ugh :sick: Spammed over to page 34 and then pages 35+ had no results


#3

I realize this should be a separate topic, but I’ve also noticed the catalog api doesn’t return anything related to bundles.

e.g. https://search.roblox.com/catalog/json?Category=4&Subcategory=37&Direction=2&ResultsPerPage=30&PageNumber=1
vs.
https://www.roblox.com/catalog/?Category=4&Subcategory=37&Direction=2

Same happens for animations and featured bundles.


#4

I noticed that as well. I found a work-around by searching for all body parts, which returned them with their AssetIds instead of their BundleIds, but also returned faces and heads.


#5

There is actually a thread for reporting any error to do with the catalog:

https://devforum.roblox.com/t/report-catalog-errors/192460

Apart from that, I am also experiencing this.


#6

That thread is meant for errors with items themselves, like their descriptions or genres. This is under bugs related to the functionality of the catalog.


#7

Please use this thread to note:

  • Typos (spelling, grammatical errors, filtered text, etc.) in the text of the item’s name or description.
  • Incorrect genre .
  • In general, issues with a catalog listing .

#8

“Listing” means the asset page itself and the information on it. Not the catalog or the functionality of it.
Also, see below:


#9

I’m also experiencing the same issue. This API is really important for our upcoming avatar editor in Adopt Me.


#10

I can confirm this bug as well. I tested the online catalog and a empty page gets returned after page 34 of the search results.


#11

This is still happening :frowning:


#12

I have been trying to generate a list of all Roblox accessory ids and noticed that after reaching a certain page API does not return any items. After some testing, I went to the Roblox catalog and attempted to reach that page to check if there are any items. Even though catalog says there are 327 pages with 30 items per page I am unable to reach page 35 or further. In this example, I am only able to access 1049 items out of 9790. I have also tried subcategory “Hair” which has 648 items and I am only able to access around 400 items.

Here is the api URL used to retrieve data: https://search.roblox.com/catalog/json?Category=11&Subcategory=19&IncludeNotForSale&Direction=2&ResultsPerPage=30&PageNumber=34

#13

Same result for me:

An avatar system I’m in the process of making entirely depends on the ability to search through all pages, so a fix for this as soon as possible would be much appreciated.

Thanks for the report! I’ve filed a bug internally with the relevant team. I’ll keep you posted, unless someone from one of the catalog teams does first!
