For a human, go to the Manage EPrints screen, and get the list of all EPrints with no filters, then sort by the ID column (add it at the bottom if it's not already there).

Subject: [EP-tech] Figuring out the highest EPrint ID?

Hello again!

New one here, related to a different project! So, I'm trying to find the HIGHEST EPrint ID that we have in our live system. I was doing this by taking the "Latest Additions" atom feed and looking at the topmost entry, however I have now realised this isn't accurate as this could be representative of an item that has been sat in a work area for a number of weeks or even months. Is there an easy way, via endpoint or API access, that I could use to derive the highest number?
