My Bitbucket API rate limit has remained in effect for longer than the documentation states.

Tate Zellner June 27, 2023

Is there something else i need to do to remove the rate limit for requests? I waited 1 hour yesterday and was not able to send requests, and now it is 20 hours later and I am still only receiving error 429 from the API.

This is also (i think) causing repositories not to load in the web view.

Hi Tate,

I see that you have already created a support ticket for this issue, I just wanted to leave a reply here for any other users who may come across your post.

If you keep getting 429 errors, your account's credentials may be used in multiple places (multiple scripts, perhaps a CI tool) and you may be only looking at the API calls made from one of them.

You need to figure out where your Bitbucket credentials are used in order to either remove them or adjust the number of API calls made with them.

The support engineer working on your ticket has provided you with additional details about the API calls made with your credentials.

Kind regards,
