Throttling on WSAPI POST Calls?

  • 1.  Throttling on WSAPI POST Calls?

    Posted 10-24-2019 10:44 AM

    Getting a sporadic "(405) Method Not Allowed" response from a Powershell script that is updating defects (Project, Defect Suite) in an automated fashion via POST calls to the API. Adding in a delay of 2 seconds in between calls resolves the issue for the set of defects I am currently working with. However, I want to be sure that I don't hit the problem again in the future. Is there throttling in place on the number of POST calls that can be made per second or minute, and how can I be sure to code around that to avoid the 405 responses?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi Mike,

    We do have some throttling in place, but my understanding is that it shouldn't be resulting in any 4xx+ response codes being passed.  It should just be queuing the requests up so they'll come back a little slower.  The limit is 24 in-flight requests at any time.  Do you know how many requests you might have been running concurrently when you encountered this response?
