To protect the quality of the API service Kayako may enable the rate limiting for some API end-points.


  • You reached the rate limit for this action and resource


  • You need to wait for some time for the rate limit to be refreshed (the exact time should be available in the Retry-After HTTP header of the response)
  • Be sure not to overburden the API end-point with this action
  • Ask Kayako support team to increase the rate limit, if you believe, that it's too narrow
