Rate Limiting

v2 API Concepts

All API requests are rate limited to prevent abuse and ensure service stability.  The exact number of calls that your application can make per day varies based on the type of request you are making.

There are two kinds of limits that affect your application:

  • Application — The total number of calls that your application can make in a day.
  • User — The total number of calls that any unique member can make in a day.  Note that this limit is governed by the overall Application limit described above.

Rate limits define the number of calls that can be made in a 24 hour period, beginning at midnight UTC.
