Rate limits.

Applications are limited to a certain number of API requests per month. If your application exceeds its limit, the API returns an error response with a status code of 429. Each API response details the number of API requests that have been made and the number that are available.

Here is an example of data received as header parameters in response:

"x-ratelimit-limit": 1000,
"x-ratelimit-available": 500,
"x-ratelimit-reset": 1680514920000

x-ratelimit-limit: Indicates the maximum number of calls available to you/your organization for the month

x-ratelimit-available: Indicates the number of calls remaining for the current month

x-ratelimit-reset: Displays the UTC time (in milliseconds) when the current quota expires and the new quota interval begins

All applications are limited to a maximum number of free calls. If your application exceeds the maximum call limits, the API returns an error response with a status code of 429. To request a higher rate limit, contact us at [email protected].
