Azure Retail Prices API broken paging

Azure Retail Prices API stopped responding the NextPageLink property to help with paginating through all the items.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. GET https://prices.azure.com/api/retail/prices?$filter=serviceName eq 'Virtual Machines'
  2. Check the NextPageLink property

Expected:

It contains the link to the next page, e.g. https://prices.azure.com/api/retail/prices?$filter=serviceName eq 'Virtual Machines'&$skip=100

Actual:

It's empty.

Workaround:

Generating the link yourself. Instead of getting the next page link from the response, check the returned item count. If it's 100, then increment the skip counter and request again.

The behavior of NextPageLink is documented: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/rest/api/cost-management/retail-prices/azure-retail-prices#api-response-pagination

We noticed it being empty today (2023-03-10).

Furthermore, this happens with both the default and the preview API versions.

    The issue should now be resolved. Let me know if you are still running into this and I would be happy to troubleshoot this with you.

    The NextPageLink should now be working correctly:
