Beginning with LCS_WS_API_V1.15 usage restriction will be added to LCSWS API.

There will be 2 groups of LCSWS API functions:

  • Standard API functions: restricted to 1000 HTTP Requests/hour
  • HigerLevel API functions restricted to 120 HTTP Requests/hour

If the usage limit is reached HTTP Requests will return HTTP RESPONSE 429 - TOO MANY REQUEST.

HTTP Header

Descripion

X-RateLimit-Limit

The maximum number of requests you are permitted to make per hour

X-RateLimit-Remaining

The number of requests remaining in the current rate limit window

X-RateLimit-Reset

The time at which the current rate limit window resets in UTC epoch seconds

The X-RateLimit-* HTTP headers are applied for all LCSWS API functions, but may not be included with in ALL HTTP responses, if an error occurs in an API request.
Rate limit resets at each new hour. For example if your first call is made at 11:15 X-RateLimit-Remaining would reset to X-RateLimit-Limit value at 12:00
