Plotly API rate limits
Updated August 01, 2017
Plotly throttles the number of requests made to its servers. This keeps server traffic and costs manageable while still providing a useful experience. If you exceed the number of allowed requests for your plan, you will receive a message and have to wait 1 to 24 hours to make additional requests.
Limits on Requests to Plotly Servers
While many functions use the API, The API limits are as follows:
|API client||Exceptions||Per Day||Per Hour||API Version|
|Python, Arduino, R, MATLAB||None||50||30||V1|
|Plotly Web App (plot.ly)||GET requests are not limited||1000||None||V2|
To avoid limits in requests to Plotly servers, you have the option to upgrade to a Professional Plan.
