API-level throttling

For example, if you have infrastructure limitations in facilitating more than a certain number of requests to an API at a time, set throttling tiers to the APIs to limit access to it accordingly. Each tier defines a maximum number of requests per minute. The API Manager comes with three default tiers as Gold, Silver and Bronze.   

When creating an API, you can select multiple entries from the list of default tiers. Also, you can add your own tiers to the API Manager using the instructions in section Adding New Throttling Tiers. At subscription time, the consumers of the API can choose which tier they are interested in. Accordingly, the subscriber is granted a maximum number of requests as defined in the tier s/he selected.  

Application-level throttling

Throttling can also be set at the application-level using the API Store. You can find more information on Application-Level Throttling.
