Rate Limits

A rate limit is the number of requests that a client application can make within a given time period.  Rate limits ensure that EBSCO maintains a high quality of service.  These limits help us provide the most reliable and scalable API for our partner developer communities.

Rate Limits

  • Live Rate Limit per Client Application - 5000 requests per minute
  • Sandbox Rate Limit per Client Application - 5000 requests per minute

Rate Limit Error

When a client application has reached their rate limit, Entitlement API will return an API response with an HTTPS Code of 429, Too Many Requests, with the following JSON body:
