Json object that contains an "href" attribute, which is an url that enables you to fetch tasks older than the oldest task of the page.



It contains an "href" url that enables you to update tasks with the latest tasks added.



This is a task json object with the same model as if you had fetched it with a GET request. However, to that model, there is an attribute mention added, which contains the mention on which that task was created. The content of that mention is the same as if you had done a GET request on that mention.

That's why it is designed above as "augmented_task".

    "id": ...,
    "assigned_to_account": ...,
    "mention": { ...mention...},
