API Rate Limits

In order to optimize the performance of our APIs and prevent apps to negatively impact other apps, we rate limit application requests using the following three categories:

Rate Limit Categories

Category Description Limits
Public or Cookie-based Calls Applications that use public API without providing an access token or cookie-based authentication. 5 requests per 10 seconds
Calls with Application Tokens Applications that make calls to Geni API using application token, which were authorized on behalf of the applications using app key and secret. 40 requests per 10 seconds
Calls with User Access Tokens Applications that make calls to Geni API by providing application token, which was authorized on behalf of the applications using app key and secret. 40 requests per 10 seconds

Rate limits are subject to change without notice.
