Get Rate Limit

Get current rate limit details about an access token.

There is an account level rate limit of 5,000 calls per hour regardless of how many access tokens you have. If an access token surpasses this limit, API calls will return an error. After the hour has passed, the count will be reset to a full 5,000 available calls.

Resource URL






Set to bearer:<access_token>.

The access token you provide must have been issued using an API credential pair generated using the scope required to call this API. This API can be called using any one of the following scopes: Read Users, Manage users, Read All, or Manage All.
