We believe we are experiencing rate limiting for bitbucket
The rate limits for bitbucket are clearly documented here Bitbucket Rate Limits
Hi Andrew, welcome to the Community!
In response to your questions:
There are no notifications available.
There is currently no way for end users to check this.
not sure if understood but seems to be related to the previous question so, I believe that no
Users can use different accounts to do the calls. If each of them does ~500 requests, no limit will be reached. This limit can not be increased.
As far as we know, there are no current issues. If the issue is happening between a plug-in/add-on and Atlassian, they can contact us so we can fix it.
Hope that helps!
Linking to another issue I commented on (this breaks CI\CD): https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Bitbucket-questions/Turn-off-Rate-limit-on-REST-API-calls/qaq-p/792439?tempId=eyJvaWRjX2NvbnNlbnRfbGFuZ3VhZ2VfdmVyc2lvbiI6IjEuMCIsIm9pZGNfY29uc2VudF9ncmFudGVkX2F0IjoxNTc1NjUyMzAwMjc5fQ%3D%3D#U1245596
maybe there will be a feature for paying for increased rate limits for a specific user coming soon, hopefully?
Renovatebot is almost unusable with these rate limits. It only takes 6 or 7 repos and it’s game over. Yes I can stagger the jobs over time but with 400 repos it’s a lot of coordination. See also the developer stats graph add-on in the marketplace which fails to scan some repos.
These rate limits make almost anything I try to get a competitor’s equivalent level of service impossible.
Adding users to circumvent makes the cost equivalent and plus, I end up orchestrating that - which wastes time.
