Rate Limiting

The EAA API imposes the following rate limiting constraints:

  • 100 objects per request
  • 25 requests per minute
  • 5000 items per page in responses that use pagination.

Exceeding these limits results in a 429 error response. The API responds with an HTTP header that provides the limit, one of:

  • X-RateLimit-Limit: Indicates the maximum request token threshold.
  • X-RateLimit-Remaining: Indicates the number of tokens remaining in the threshold.
  • X-RateLimit-Next: Indicates that the user has reached the rate limit threshold. The value indicates an estimated time when the next request token will be available.
