Systems quotas to protect your store

Last updated: 21 Aug 2019

Today we are introducing fair usage quotas within our architecture. The use of quotas is common practice for web facing services and their introduction by Moltin is to ensure an optimal and fair experience for all customers that wish to leverage the flexibility of our APIs, products & services.

Our API reference contains a new quotas guide and gives details of the entities that will carry quotas. These are also listed below for your convenience.

10 000

**Customers

10 000

**Inventories

10 000

pagination offset

Flow fields

100

per flow

These quotas will be fully rolled out on Tuesday, August 27th, 2019, with the exception of  *Currencies which is already in place and **Catalog, **Customers and **Inventories which will be rolled out at a later date and communicated in advance.

To clarify "Pagination offsets" is not the total number of records for that resource type inside of Moltin but rather a technical limitation of how many entries can be retrieved from a specific API endpoint with pagination. As an example, you are able store millions of products inside of the Moltin catalog and to handle this scale you are able to leverage filters to retrieve, access and paginate through all of them. A simple GET request with no filters will only paginate up to 10,000 records. By leveraging a combination or variety of filters you can access every single entry for that resource type.

If you have concerns or need higher quotas, and you are on our Enterprise plan or wish to upgrade your plan, please contact us as we can increase quotas on a case by case basis.

For transparency; when you reach out to us we will need to learn more about your use case and requirements in detail so we can match our solution and capabilities with your needs.
