API Limits

This question is answered

What defines an API call?....Is it only when you make a call to get a session ID?.... or is it ANY and ALL calls, even with the same Session ID? Also, why is Rollbase so stringent with API call limits per hour? 200/hr calls is nothing when dealing with mulitple updated reports.

  • Hello,

    API calls are used to programmatically access Progress Rollbase for integration and extension purposes via several supported Web Service APIs: SOAP, REST, RSS and JDBC.

    API calls are used to build integrations or external data manipulation tools that need to communicate with Progress Rollbase programmatically

    All API calls are counted not just the call to retrieve session ID

    To protect Rollbase resources from overuse, the number of API calls is limited.

    Thanks.
