Rate Limits

To ensure the reliability of the API, and to keep it available to all users, the Striven API enforces rate limits based on your Striven plan. We enforce both a per-minute rate limit, and a daily usage limit. Daily usage tracking resets at midnight UTC.

Requests that exceed either limit will receive a 429 Too Many Requests response, which contains the standard Retry-After header that indicates how many seconds a client should wait before retrying the request. Limits are allocated per tenant, so if a tenant has multiple clients consuming the API, an individual client could receive a 429 response without necessarily exceeding the rate themselves.

If you upgrade to the Enterprise plan, please allow 60 minutes for your rate limits to be increased.

Striven Plan Max Requests per Minute Max Requests per Day
Standard 100 5000
Enterprise 500 25,000


This is a sample response a tenant on the Standard plan would receive when they exceed the per-minute Rate Limit.
