The GET Position Codes List by Company ID endpoint, retrieves a comprehensive list of Position Codes from the Paylocity system with each call. Position codes are alphanumeric or numeric designations employed by corporations to classify and oversee various job responsibilities and positions within their workforce. These codes fulfill several crucial functions in the domains of human resources, talent management, and organizational structure.
Pagination can be achieved by using the "positions" parameter and specifying the values of "limit" and "offset" to decide the quantity of records to be retrieved. The utilization of the "limit" option permits the user to restrict the quantity of rows that are retrieved from a query, whereas the "offset" option enables the omission of a designated number of rows preceding the commencement of the result set. The utilization of both the limit and offset parameters in a query allows for the skipping of rows as well as the restriction of the number of rows returned.
