Hello,

Is there a way to limit the amount of API calls a certain user can issue? I saw an earlier post (https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/20153-is-there-a-limit-number-of-request-per-seconds-for-prtg-api) but it was from 2011, is there a recent update on this?

Thanks, Ofek

Hi Ofek,

Thank you for the post!

It's not possible to limit the amount of possible API Calls for users. You can only limit the entire access of a user (to change the user to a "read only" user). In this case, the user is only possible to execute read API calls on the devices to which the user has access.

Hello Moritz,

If so, can I limit API calls for the entire installation?

Thanks, Ofek

Unfortunately, there is no way to limit the number of API calls.
