Tier limits

Rate limiting is considered per api_token. API allows performing requests according to the tier.

Each of the three tiers offers different rate limiting:

Tier Restrictions
Startup Not Available
Business 60 requests per 2 seconds per api_token
Enterprise & Trial 80 requests per 2 seconds per api_token
Exhausted Limit
If you are exhausting your limits, you can either restructure the architecture of your integrations or upgrade to a higher tier

Header Information

Each API response is enriched with the following headers:

  • X-RateLimit-Limit: The maximum number of requests that can be made by the current api_token
  • X-RateLimit-Remaining: The remaining number of calls within the time window
  • X-RateLimit-Reset: the number of seconds before the limit resets

Once you exhaust the request limit, any concurrent API call will return an error response HTTP code 429. You can refer back to X-RateLimit-Remaining header which will inform you when the limit will reset.
