Get all KPI entries

The KPI entries are filtered based on the search query string. All the search criteria is optional and the dateFrom and dateTo will default to today's date if not sent. The action will return a maximum of 500 entries per page. If the result set has the amount of rows you set &rows=100, it's your responsibility to check the next page to see if there are any more -- you do this by adding &page=2 to the query, then &page=3 and so on.
