The default value is
This setting allows you to specify an offset at which rows will begin being returned. Effectively, the request skips the specified number of matching entries. For example, given a fetch that typically returns
a, b, c, d, specifying an offset of 1 will return
b, c, d, and an offset of 4 will return an empty array. Offsets are ignored in nested requests such as subqueries.
This property can be used to restrict the working set of data. In combination with
fetch, you can create a subrange of an arbitrary result set.
