API rate limiting

For Cloud efficiency and security reasons, Sigfox is moving a step forward on API rate limiting, by setting upper bounds for some API endpoints use.

Please note that a new HTTP response will have to be integrated by the customer information system in case of exceeded rate : “HTTP 429: too many requests”.

You’ll find below the list of Endpoint with the new rate limitation and reason for change :
