Rate limits

Is the REST API rate-limited? What are the limits? How can I increase them?

Akord imposes restrictions on the number of REST API requests permitted within a designated timeframe. We do that to mitigate potential abuse and to block denial-of-service attacks.

Other than general limits, the API allows a specific number of requests in time windows per subscription plan. Those limits are in place because of our infrastructure costs – higher requests rate generates bigger costs. You can find up-to-date API limits for each subscription plan on our pricing page.

HTTP 429 is the API response that indicates crossing the API limit from your current plan. If you start receiving such responses, you may consider upgrading your subscription plan or lowering the request rate.
