I am trying to use GetCategorySpecifics, but the list seems to be truncated. For Subject NameRecommendation, I am only seeing the first 25 ValueRecommendation elements. How do I retrieve the entire list?

25 is the default values per name list length. To retrieve additional values, include the <MaxValuesPerName> parameter.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<GetCategorySpecificsRequest xmlns="urn:ebay:apis:eBLBaseComponents">

9999 is the maximum value for both MaxValuesPerName and MaxNames.

More information is here:
