How to filter records with RESTful models and controllers

I’m creating a RESTful API with Yii2 and have successfully setup a model named Contacts by following the Quick Start Tutorial*. I love how records can be created, listed, updated and deleted without creating any actions.

However I can’t see how to filter results. I would like to only return contacts where contact.user_id is equal to the requesters id as it currently will reply with all records. Is this possible without creating the actions?

I am unsure also how I can limit results. From what I’ve read I feel it should append the URI with ?limit=5.
