API access rate limited

Can anyone tell what does this API Hits mean??
I have got an email mentioning that I have crossed the threshold limit of 20 hits in 1 min??

Hi Chakit !
API Hit means you have deployed your configuration many times(more than 20) within 1min to fetch the data quickly. Now after doing so BOLT IOT will deactivate your API access to fetch the data for 6hrs. After 6hrs they will give you the access back. I suggest you to wait for some interval of maybe 20 sec before you fetch the next data.

Hi @chakitbhandari93,

Please check this link https://docs.boltiot.com/docs/api-access-rules

Do let me know in case you need further assistance.
