Rate limits

The Claid API uses a number of safeguards against bursts of incoming traffic to help maximize its stability. Image processing requests that come with relatively high intensity can be temporarily limited.
By default, users may issue up to 120 requests per minute or 4 requests per second.
If you need to process even more images, please contact us and we will expand the limits for you.
To explore the remaining restrictions, every image processing response contains relevant headers:
  • RateLimit-Limit indicates the request-quota associated with the user in the current time window.
  • RateLimit-Remaining indicates the remaining requests that you can issue in the current time window.
  • RateLimit-Reset is the number of seconds until the quota resets.
