Developer Preview

This API is subject to change. Bug fixes and new features will be released based on developer feedback throughout the preview period.

Retrieves messages between the business and participant.

Up to 30 messages are returned per request. If the number of messages in a conversation is larger than 30, pagingMetadata.cursors is returned in the response, indicating that another page of results is available. To retrieve the next page of messages, pass the next cursor value in the next request's paging.cursor parameter.

To ensure you'll always retrieve the next record, use the same visibility and sorting in the first request and all subsequent requests.

By default, 30 messages are retrieved and sorted by sequence in descending order (the most recent messages are first in the list).
