Cannot trigger rate limits in sandbox

Continuing the discussion from Cannot trigger 429 when testing rate limits:

I can no longer trigger rate limits in the sandbox using the X-RateLimit-Test header. Has this facility been removed?

Many thanks in advance,

Andrew Stewart

Hi Andrew,

Thanks for reporting this. I’ve had a look through our rate limit logs and found a config error in the sandbox environment, which is probably why it’s not counting and limiting your queries. I’m working on it now for you.


That seems to be working better now, I get a You must not exceed 5 requests per 60 seconds from the API as expected again. Sorry for the breakage!

Thank you, Dominic – much appreciated!
