Request body

Do not supply a request body for this method.


If successful, this function returns a 200 OK response code and a educationSchool collection in the response body. The response also includes a @odata.nextLink URL or a @odata.deltaLink URL.

  • If a @odata.nextLink URL is returned, there are additional pages of data to be retrieved in the session. The application continues making requests using the @odata.nextLink URL until a @odata.deltaLink URL is included in the response.
  • If a @odata.deltaLink URL is returned, there is no more data about the existing state of the resource to be returned. Persist and use the @odata.deltaLink URL to learn about changes to the resource in the future.

For details, see Using delta query. For example requests, see Get incremental changes for users.
