Thanks. I went with setting the config property and it works like a charm.

You can make programmatic changes either by removing the iterator and replacing it, or by
directly editing the configuration. Both of these can be done through the connector object.TableOperations().
For the former, you can use removeIterator and attachIterator. For the latter, just use setProperty
for table.iterator.<scope>.opt.maxVersions and set it to the value you want.

The docs ( talk about
setting maxVersions on the shell

user@myinstance mytable> config -t mytable -s

I'm looking for a corresponding API call to do the same?

I tried doing this:

IteratorSetting versionSetting = new IteratorSetting(22, VersioningIterator.class);
Connector.tableOperations.attachIterator(tableName, versionSetting, scopes);

But looks like that adds a second iterator at priority 22 with maxVersions=3 whereas there
is already an existing versioning iterator at a lower priority with maxVersions=1, and I end
up with only 1 version.
