Ads API Rate Limits question


#1

Hi we need a littel explanation for rate limits.

On documentation for endpoints Account Reads (GET endpoints with :account_id) rate limit is 25 per 1 minute. When we do a call to the api in the header we get this

X-Rate-Limit-Limit = 2000
X-Rate-Limit-Remaining = 1999 if we do another request the X-Rate-Limit-Remaining is 1998 and so one.

Now the question is what is 25 in the documentation since we have done more that 25 GET request in a minute. Also is this 2000 separat for GET POST PUT DELETE or is 2000 used globaly on ad account level

I think you will find this FAQ helpful; the question itself is not what you are after, but it links to all the relevant documentation that explains everything in detail, including limits for every tier and per operation.
