Following the review of recent issues relating to the performance of the ICP connection data API, and work undertaken in response to these issues, we are making further changes to the API management policy to reduce the likelihood of additional issues impacting our users.
The new management policy will be applied on Thursday 5 August and is as follows:
A management policy is set on this API restricting users to 50 calls per minute for ‘search’ and 75 calls per minute for ‘get by id’ calls and/or 10 MB of data per hour.
Our capacity to process aggregate call volumes remains well below what it was previously. This restriction on volumes is to ensure and that the operation of the registry market system is not disrupted.
The new management policy has been set to provide all users a fair go. While unlikely with this policy in place, there remains the possibility of receiving a 503 response (indicating the registry is busy) during periods of heavy use by multiple concurrent users. If you encounter 503 responses, please reduce your call volumes and try again later.
Participants are reminded that they have the ability to use the registry and registry web services directly for operational uses in accordance with the registry access policy.
