Limit API query count OR development environment?


#1

Is there a means to limit the number of API queries that can be made in a certain time period? My concern is that as we are developing our code, we may inadvertently loop a query and make an unnecessary number of calls.

Alternatively, is there a development environment / sandbox that queries a static set of data? I have no idea if this exists, and if it did/does if it would be available at a lower cost than query pricing on the live data.

Neither of those options currently exist. It’s recommended that you implement whatever rate limiting or request counting within your application since that will be custom to your own business needs. This will also allow you to actively monitor your own usage.
