Rate limits for the REST API

Learn about REST API rate limits, how to avoid exceeding them, and what to do if you do exceed them.

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" in the GitHub Free documentation.
