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 :
Reason for change
Rate limitation (max)
Retrieve a list of device messages (GET method)
Device messages are pushed by the Backend to the customer Information System via callback and/or connector.
1 request every second.
Retrieve device information (GET method)
Update a device (PUT method)
Delete a device (DELETE method)
Device information page is not likely to change frequently (name, last seen etc).
1 request every 60 minutes.
Sigfox reserves the right to modify those limits without notice.
