ms_graph_pager: Pager object for Graph list results

ms_graph_pagerR Documentation

Pager object for Graph list results

Description

Class representing an iterator for a set of paged query results.

Format

An R6 object of class ms_graph_pager.

Fields

  • token: The token used to authenticate with the Graph host.

  • output: What the pager should yield on each iteration, either "data.frame","list" or "object". See 'Value' below.

Methods

  • new(...): Initialize a new user object. See 'Initialization' below.

  • has_data(): Returns TRUE if there are pages remaining in the iterator, or FALSE otherwise.

Active bindings

  • value: The returned value on each iteration of the pager.

Initialization

The recommended way to create objects of this class is via the ms_object$get_list_pager() method, but it can also be initialized directly. The arguments to the new() method are:

  • token: The token used to authenticate with the Graph host.

  • first_page: A list containing the first page of results, generally from a call to call_graph_endpoint() or the do_operation() method of an AzureGraph R6 object.

  • next_link_name,value_name: The names of the components of first_page containing the link to the next page, and the set of values for the page respectively. The default values are @odata.nextLink and value.

  • generate_objects: Whether the iterator should return a list containing the parsed JSON for the page values, or convert it into a list of R6 objects. See 'Value' below.

  • type_filter: Any extra arguments required to initialise the returned objects. Only used if generate_objects is TRUE.

  • default_generator: The default generator object to use when converting a list of properties into an R6 object, if the class can't be detected. Defaults to ms_object. Only used if generate_objects is TRUE.

  • ...: Any extra arguments required to initialise the returned objects. Only used if generate_objects is TRUE.

Value

The value active binding returns the page values for each iteration of the pager. This can take one of 3 forms, based on the initial format of the first page and the generate_objects argument.

If the first page of results is a data frame (each item has been converted into a row), then the pager will return results as data frames. In this case, the output field is automatically set to "data.frame" and the generate_objects initialization argument is ignored. Usually this will be the case when the results are meant to represent external data, eg items in a SharePoint list.

If the first page of results is a list, the generate_objects argument sets whether to convert the items in each page into R6 objects defined by the AzureGraph class framework. If generate_objects is TRUE, the output field is set to "object", and if generate_objects is FALSE, the output field is set to "list".

Examples

## Not run: 

# list direct memberships
firstpage <- call_graph_endpoint(token, "me/memberOf")

pager <- ms_graph_pager$new(token, firstpage)
pager$has_data()
pager$value

# once all the pages have been returned
isFALSE(pager$has_data())
is.null(pager$value)

# returning items, 1 per page, as raw lists of properties
firstpage <- call_graph_endpoint(token, "me/memberOf", options=list(`$top`=1))
pager <- ms_graph_pager$new(token, firstpage, generate_objects=FALSE)
lst <- NULL
while(pager$has_data())
    lst <- c(lst, pager$value)

# returning items as a data frame
firstdf <- call_graph_endpoint(token, "me/memberOf", options=list(`$top`=1),
                               simplify=TRUE)
pager <- ms_graph_pager$new(token, firstdf)
df <- NULL
while(pager$has_data())
    df <- vctrs::vec_rbin(df, pager$value)
