Rate limits for GitHub Apps

Rate limits restrict the rate of traffic to your GitHub Enterprise Server instance, to help ensure consistent access for all users.

API rate limits are disabled by default for GitHub Enterprise Server. Contact your site administrator to confirm the rate limits for your instance.

If you are a site administrator, you can set rate limits for your instance. For more information, see "Configuring rate limits."

If you are developing an app for users or organizations outside of your instance, the standard GitHub.com rate limits apply. For more information, see "Rate limits for the REST API" and "Rate limits and node limits for the GraphQL API" in the GitHub Free documentation.
