Throttling of requests in OKAPI

In order to maintain an adequate service level of OKAPI, the API endpoints incorporate a throttling mechanism that will limit the requests by an application to a reasonable amount per minute.

To give you transparency about the remaining requests you are allowed to issue, we will send the throttling information in the following response headers of every request:

header description
X-Ratelimit-Limit the total amount of requests allowed
X-Ratelimit-Remaining the remaining amount of requests
X-Ratelimit-Reset time stamp, when your X-Ratelimit-Limit will be reset
