callback

Optional

function(nullable Error, nullable Array, nullable Object, nullable Object)

The function which will be called with the result of the API call.

The second parameter to the callback is Array of Context.

When autoPaginate: false is specified through options, it contains the result in a single response. If the response indicates the next page exists, the third parameter is set to be used for the next request object. The fourth parameter keeps the raw response object of an object representing ListContextsResponse.

Returns

Promise 

  • The promise which resolves to an array. The first element of the array is Array of Context.

    When autoPaginate: false is specified through options, the array has three elements. The first element is Array of Context in a single response. The second element is the next request object if the response indicates the next page exists, or null. The third element is an object representing ListContextsResponse.

    The promise has a method named "cancel" which cancels the ongoing API call.

Example

const dialogflow = require('dialogflow');

const client = new dialogflow.v2.ContextsClient({
  // optional auth parameters.
});

// Iterate over all elements.
const formattedParent = client.sessionPath('[PROJECT]', '[SESSION]');

client.listContexts({parent: formattedParent})
  .then(responses => {
    const resources = responses[0];
    for (const resource of resources) {
      // doThingsWith(resource)
    }
  })
  .catch(err => {
    console.error(err);
  });

// Or obtain the paged response.
const formattedParent = client.sessionPath('[PROJECT]', '[SESSION]');


const options = {autoPaginate: false};
const callback = responses => {
  // The actual resources in a response.
  const resources = responses[0];
  // The next request if the response shows that there are more responses.
  const nextRequest = responses[1];
  // The actual response object, if necessary.
  // const rawResponse = responses[2];
  for (const resource of resources) {
    // doThingsWith(resource);
  }
  if (nextRequest) {
    // Fetch the next page.
    return client.listContexts(nextRequest, options).then(callback);
  }
}
client.listContexts({parent: formattedParent}, options)
  .then(callback)
  .catch(err => {
    console.error(err);
  });

listContextsStream

listContextsStream(request, options) returns Stream

Equivalent to listContexts, but returns a NodeJS Stream object.

This fetches the paged responses for listContexts continuously and invokes the callback registered for 'data' event for each element in the responses.

The returned object has 'end' method when no more elements are required.

autoPaginate option will be ignored.
