Rate limits

Writer API calls of various categories are subject to differing rate constraints. Furthermore, the Enterprise API has its own set of restrictions.


Please keep in mind that you can check your current rate limit status at any moment using the developer dashboard.

All client-to-server queries on Writer are associated with the authenticated developer account. This is the user who created the developer account. All requests from a Client to a server count toward the API token rate limit.

Requests from a client to a server are limited to5,000per hour and per token.

In the following cases, client-to-server requests are subject to a higher limit of 20,000 requests per hour and per API token.

The request is coming from a developer account owned by a Writer Enterprise account.

The request comes from an Auth App authorized by a Writer business partner.
