API access has been rate limited

Why my api access has been rate limited every time. Please reply.

There are some limits on the number of times you can use API requests in particular time interval.
For more info on API access rules refer this https://docs.boltiot.com/docs/api-access-rules

@mishrasaurabhvns123 hello

Same problem is happen with me, while doing the project but it will be fine if you do one of them:-

  1. The API has limit you can not change you will have to try it after sometime it works fine later.
    It will work fine just try a day later
    2.You have exceeded the API limit. You include time.sleep to keep away from this error.

@mishrasaurabhvns123 Hello
The reason that API access gets rate-limited is because any cloud service has a limited bandwidth which is shared by all of its users. When any particular user exceeds the specified API limit it affects the usage experience of other users of Bolt Cloud. To prevent this situation and to ensure that all users get a continuous up-time of the Bolt Cloud, API services get rate-limited.

The good news is that there are several ways through which you can resolve this problem, such as:

  1. You can decrease the frequency of API requests (the number of times API requests are made in a particular time interval) by increasing the time interval using the time.sleep() function and passing an argument taking into consideration these limits:

Time Duration ------------------------|------- Allowed API hits [Free Plan]

1 min                     |          20                |
6 mins                    |          72                | 
30 mins                   |          360               |
60 mins                   |          720               |
  1. The API access has been limited to you because of its limited bandwidth, try again a day later, it will work fine.
  2. If you need a higher bandwidth or speed, you can upgrade to the pro version at a small monthly fee of $0.75 or Rs.50 INR, the link is below.
