Beginning on Thursday, August 1, Bandwidth’s Application Platform will enforce new API request rate limits of 100 orders per minute sustained or a burst of 800 orders over an 8 minute period for:
- Search API Requests
- Order API Requests
If you submit more API requests than this rate limit, you will receive a 429 error code. We know limits can sound restrictive, but these updates will ensure high-quality service for all our API users.
What are the rate limits?
What should I do if I encounter a 429 rate limit error?
If you encounter a 429 rate limit error code, please pause your requests until the time specified in the X-RateLimit-Reset HTTP header. This is a UNIX timestamp (seconds since January 1, 1970). You may also pause for 1 minute, though this may cause unnecessary waiting.
