The API is rate-limited in order to prevent abuse and protect our origins from attack. Rate limiting is performed on a per-IP basis.
Exceeding the following rate limits will result in a temporary block, during which the service will respond with HTTP 429 Too Many Requests. The block will lift automatically after 1 minute.
These types of requests are limited to 300 requests per 1 minute, per IP.
POST / PUT / PATCH / DELETE requests
These types of requests are limited to 120 requests per 1 minute, per IP.
If you send more than 250 requests within 10 seconds, your IP may become blocked and require manual intervention by Vanilla Support in order to remove the block.
