  • Bronze: 1000 requests per minute
  • Silver: 2000 requests per minute
  • Gold: 5000 requests per minute
  • Unlimited: Allows unlimited access (you can disable the Unlimited tier by editing the <EnableUnlimitedTier> element in <ThrottlingConfigurations> node of the <APIM_HOME>/repository/conf/api-manager.xml file)

    Note

    In API Manager 2.0.0 onwards, Advanced Throttling is enabled by default with following configuration in <API-M_HOME>/repository/conf/api-manager.xml.

    Code Block
    <ThrottlingConfigurations>
            <EnableAdvanceThrottling>true</EnableAdvanceThrottling>
         ......
    <ThrottlingConfigurations>

    If you are disabling Advanced Throttling in any case by setting the value of <EnableAdvanceThrottling> false, Advanced Throttling is disabled and old basic Throttling mechanism is enabled thereafter. In such a scenario, if you want to disable the Unlimited Throttling tier of old basic Throttling configurations, you need to disable it under <TierManagement> by setting <EnableUnlimitedTier> to false.

    Code Block
    <TierManagement>        
            <EnableUnlimitedTier>true</EnableUnlimitedTier>
        </TierManagement>

It is also possible to specify a bandwidth per unit time instead of a number of requests. This can be done by an API Manager administrator. For information on editing the values of the existing tiers, defining new tiers and specifying a bandwidth per unit time, see adding a new subscription-level throttling tier
