Are there any data or request limits specific to the RDP API?

I found a page for the EIKON Data API https://developers.refinitiv.com/eikon-apis/eikon-data-api/docs?content=49692&type=documentation_item but I wonder if there is something similar for the Refinitv Data Platform?

Yes, there is a request limit in the Refinitiv Data Platform. For example, the reference page of the historical-pricing endpoint in the https://api.refinitiv.com/ mentions two rate limits.

  • User Limit
    The user rate limit is the maximum number of concurrent requests per user. This rate limit is per API operation. If the number of concurrent requests exceeds the limit, HTTP error 429 Too Many Requests will be returned.
  • Backend Limit
    The backend rate limit is the maximum number of concurrent requests across all users against the backend. This rate limit is per API operation. If the number of concurrent requests exceeds the limit, HTTP error 503 Service Unavailable will be returned.

Moreover, the RDP API GENERAL GUIDELINES also mentions Throttling Limits.

However, it doesn't mention the exact number. You may need to contact your Refinitiv's account or Sales team for more information.
