Rate Limiter

The rate limiter is set by default on all api endpoints, with an amount set in the Administration Panel => Rate Limiter => API Rate Limiter for time interval (in milliseconds). To disable the rate limiter you can add the api-bypass-rate-limit permission for your user group role in the Administration -> Permission.

To disable programmatically or change the rate limiter, such as the number of calls and the time interval, simply provide for the API function .addRoute, within the existing options object that already defines authRequired: true/false, a property rateLimiterOptions, providing false if you want disable the RateLimiter for this endpoint, or by providing a valid configuration object with the desired configuration, in the following format {numRequestsAllowed: 10, intervalTimeInMS: 60000}.

The rate limiter is set by default in the development environment and can be disabled in the admin panel in the Administration Panel => Rate Limiter => API Rate Limiter.

For requests that are made and exceed the limit set by the rate limiter, three extra properties will be sent by the request headers.

  1. x-ratelimit-limit: The number of calls allowed for a certain amount of time.
  2. x-ratelimit-remaining: The number of requests remaining in the current rate limit window.
  3. x-ratelimit-reset: The time at which the current rate limit window resets in UTC epoch seconds.
