I'm tinkering around with industry jobs in the API for various uses and noticing that jobs only go back to a certain point. I can't find any details on this xml page and wondering if there is a specific limit on jobs it returns or is there something else I can do to query date ranges, etc.

If anyone has any further info, it would be great. Thanks

None of the APIs give you a complete history. If you didn't collect it when it was originally available or a short time after that there's a good chance its gone and you can't get it from the API. CCP leaves it to you to archive the older stuff if you need it. This is done to prevent server load and bandwidth issues.

OK, this is what I thought it was. Thanks
