Rate limits
The Claid API employs 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 120 requests per minute or 4 requests per second.
If you need to process even more images, please contact us and we will personally extend the limits.
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.
