How do I get ALLLLLL of my tasks out of Zoho Projects via REST API?

Hi there,

I am trying desperately to be able to build an ETL job that will periodically update our internal DataMart with our WBSes and time logs from Zoho Projects with data retrieved via REST API calls. PLEASE NOTE: doing this is a requirement for my business and I am not interested in justifying it, only in accomplishing it.

I could have sworn that a month or so ago you could, by using the /projects/[PROJECTID]/tasklists/[TASKLISTID]/tasks/ endpoint, retrieve the entire task tree for the tasklist. This no longer seems to work, if it ever did.

Am I missing some way of doing this? I'd like very much not to have to write dumb recursive things to call every single task's subtasks endpoint to get my entire WBS out of this app.

On a related note: why is Projects' REST API so overwhelmingly obtuse compared to the CRM REST API? I love working with the CRM one.

Thanks,
Tom
