Gets list of Scopes#

To view the current list of scopes of the Janssen Server, choose the first option from the following menu. It will ask to enter type, limit & pattern to filter in searching. You may skip by pressing 'Enter' key to get all the scopes of the server. In my case, I have set limit upto 5.

«Scope type. Type: string»
type: 

«Search size - max size of the results to return. Type: integer»
limit  [50]: 5

«Search pattern. Type: string»
pattern: 
Calling Api with parameters: {'limit': 5}
