in reply to Wait for the response of API

Do you mean that the API-call returns before all the data is ready and available?

Perhaps the API has another call that tells you when the data is "ready"?

    Yes...The API call is returning before the data is ready. Is there anything that tells if the data is ready as you mentioned ?
      I have no idea. It will depend on the API, so you should read its docs.
