Rate limits

The Keeper Secrets Manager API employs a number of safeguards against bursts of incoming traffic to help maximize its stability. Users who send many requests in quick succession may see error responses that show up as status code 429. We have several limiters in the API, including:

  • A rate limiter that limits the number of requests received by the SDK within any given minute.

    For most SDK request, Keeper Commander allows up to 10 read operations per minute and 10 write operations per minute.

Treat these limits as maximums and don’t generate unnecessary load. See Handling limiting gracefully for advice on handling 429s.

If you suddenly see a rising number of rate limited requests, please contact support.

We may reduce limits to prevent abuse, or increase limits to enable high-traffic applications. To request an increased rate limit, please contact support.
