Hello @Gajapriya Masilamani,

Thank you for contacting us about this question. 

Per our Atlassian REST API policy:

Resource and rate limits, and the default and maximum sizes of paged data ARE NOT considered part of the API and may change (possibly dynamically). It is the responsibility of the client to read the road signs and obey the speed limit.

In summary, we don't establish any rate limits for Confluence REST-API calls.

What we have seen is sites becoming overloaded due to excessive calls. In general, these are coming from a script, where you'd be seeing REST calls being made every second.

If you want to use the API in a script, make sure to add a delay in order to avoid this issue.

Let me know if you have any questions about that.



Hi Shannon,

Thank you for your response and not have further queries.
