The 3Di API handles a global throttling or rate limiting policy. The throttle rates therefore apply for all resources and allow for 120 requests per minute per user. For users with super-user privileges, the rate is 5000 requests per minute.

Hourly and daily maximum rates

In due course there also will be an hourly maximum rate of 1000 requests and a daily maximum rate of 5000 requests. We recommend taking these already into account when building your application.

Throttled requests will receive a response with the code 429 (see responses for details). A Retry-After header is included in the response that tells the client how long to wait before the server is ready to accept the following request.
