Set up rate limit notifications

All admins are notified by the Rate Limit Monitoring widget on the Admin Dashboard and by email about their org-wide rate limit usage. See Rate limits overview.

Note

Admins aren’t notified of client and operations-based rate limit usage.

Notifications include:

  • Warnings when the org’s rate limit usage exceeds the threshold. Currently, the threshold is set at 60% for API products and at 90% for workforce products.

  • Violations when the org’s rate limit usage reaches 100%.

You can access the Rate Limits Dashboard from these notifications to understand and investigate the rate limit and the current utilization of each endpoint. See Rate Limits Dashboard.
