Does Throttling vary with the plan

    Hello Subhash, 

    Rate limiting does not vary by plan type and is imposed on the per user basis. Our SDKs also have exponential backoff methods and retry headers built in to mitigate the risk of being affected by 429s. 

    Please note that you must be logged into a paid Box account in order to receive support, but they are only scoped for break/fix troubleshooting so the forum is your best option for questions of this nature. 

    Best,

    Kourtney, Box Developer Advocate

    Any Thoughts on why I do not see 429 even after uploading 100000 files over a period of 23 hours. As I said I only see Gateway timeout and Internal server error and not 429 or is there an easy way to get a 429?

    Thanks.

    Its hard to say for sure without more information and pulling logs. The issue would't be the amount of content you are uploading but rather the speed. The rate limit to be concerned about there is 4 uploads/second/user. If you want to trigger a 429 I would recommend trying without using the SDK and exceeding 4 uploads per second.

    Hello,

    I tried to upload more than 4 files/second/user yet I did not see any throttling exception. We are deciding to get a lincensed plan to get a better support, can you recommend which one will be better?.

    Also while looking at different plans, I noticied that in the Enterprise version: The APIs are capped at 100K API per Month?, this is a huge contradiction on what is happening in real as I can go over more than 100K per day and that too using a developer plan.

    Thanks,
    Subhash

    Hey Kourtney, 

    My name is Vikram, and I'm Subhash's colleague. As you suggested, I spoke with your sales team (Colton Arman), but he was unaware of the questions and directed me to https://developer.box.com/guides/, which was ineffective because we didn't receive the answer we needed from the guides in the URL.

    Is there someone we can talk to and get our questions answered over the phone?

    Dear Kourtney,

    I'm a colleague of Subhash and Vikram, the two earlier posters in this thread.

    Could someone in Box Support, like yourself, reply on this?
