Enhanced API Usage Monitoring

If  you integrate dotMailer with your back office systems, you might have already noticed that your API usage is monitored in your account (My Account / Current Month Activity).

Each time your integration makes an API call, we keep a tally and show you your total monthly API calls so you can get a good idea of how busy your integration is.

Now we’re using this data in a way that will help you even more, by checking for rogue API integrations. Each month we have loads of clients experimenting with our extensive API , however, sometimes they make mistakes or don’t code as efficiently as possible. This could result in unneccessary overuse of the API, which could potentially slow the service for other users.

We’re introducing monitoring code which will temporarily block API access once the number of API calls exceeds a reasonable level. We’ve analyzed current usage, and the limiter won’t affect any accounts at the moment.

But do be aware that if your code goes out of control, it may lead to a temporary block. We will of course return an error message, so you’ll know what’s going on.
