Hi @ETLBATeam,

The message means what it states in the status - the request rate at which your application is requesting a new token is too high. An access token is valid for a period of time, and in that period it can be used to make API calls using the same token. No need to request a new token everytime. If you see the rdpToken.py - it saves the token in a file and requests a new token only if the old one is expired.

Hi @Gurpreet ,
Is their any way to delete old/existing token as I don't see any token in folder.


Is the token being saved - does the script has write permission on the FS - can you paste the output of the rdpToken.py script.
