Link to test case:
Debugger code (
Error messages shown:
Description of problem: I am trying to get the id of the entire datatset that is passed to AJAX, and display it in an array on the page, in a way that the array refreshes everytime the page reload. I have the following code:

$ ->
processing: true
order: []
serverSide: true
drawCallback: ->
people_ids = @api().rows().data().map (people) -> people.DT_RowId
$("#filtered-data").html people_ids.join()
ajax: data: (d) ->
d.url = $('#people-pr-datatable').data('source');

i am able to display the ids of only the current page in the filtered-data div. But i would like to display all the ids of my table i if possible. What would be the right way please ?

    We're happy to take a look, but as per the forum rules, please link to a test case - a test case that replicates the issue will ensure you'll get a quick and accurate response. Information on how to create a test case (if you aren't able to link to the page you are working on) is available here.

    Hi Colin,
    I am trying to build the test case, but I do not know how to do that with an AJAX Datatable please.

    Do you mean the id's of the data shown in the rows of the table? If so, note that you have server-side processing enabled (serverSide). That means that only the rows currently visible in the table (i.e. the current "page") are available at the client-side.

    If you want the id's for all rows, regardless of the page they would be shown on with the DataTable, you'd need to use client-side processing (i.e. remove the serverSide option).

    Regarding a test case, if you can't link to your own page, the second page Colin linked to contains a number of templates including Ajax, which you could use to create a test case from.
