WordPress fix Tag rest api

    Tag rest api, by

    GET wp/v2/tags returns a list of tags (20 by default) but there is no information about how many tags there are in totals. The only way I found to get all the tags is to issue multiple requests with the page parameter in the query string until I get a response with an empty array. Is there any other elegant solution?

    POST wp/v2/tags will return 409 if a tag already exists, but there are no other information about the tag itself, like the id:

    "code": "term_exists",
    "message": "A term with the name provided already exists in this taxonomy.",
    "data": {
    "status": 409

    The GET API only works with id, it doesn’t work passing a tag name. The only way I found to solve this is to prefetch all the tags with ids, store them in memory and check if the tag already exists before doing a POST request.
    Again, is there any other way, a more efficient one, to solve this issue?
