Is there any call limit and IP white-list when using World Check One API?

Hi Team,

I ask this question on behalf of a client, who would like to know below two questions about our World-Check One API.

1. whether there is any call limit in WC1 API? say a maximum number of API calls within one second or minute

2. whether we support IP white-list in WC1 API?

Could you help advise on above two questions?

Thanks so much,

Leo

@leo.wu

Please see my responses to your queries below:

1. whether there is any call limit in WC1 API? say a maximum number of API calls within one second or minute

- We recommend a max of 5 API calls/second but our platform can handle more provided you perform adequate testing to see how your integration behaves with our platform because the max number depends on a lot of factors like the kind of names being screened which has a direct impact on the amount of data being returned e.g. common names like John Smith would return more data, the number of network hops between your systems and our servers. So you can send more than 5 API calls/second but you have to perform a good amount of testing and sort of deriving how many API calls can your system send to World-Check One API.

2. whether we support IP white-list in WC1 API?

- You can whitelist the IPs but we recommend FQDN or domain whitelisting as IPs are subject to change but domain whitelisting is a better option. We do not whitelist anything on the World-Check side you will have to perform FQDN whitelisting.


Hope this helps.

Regards,

Mehran Khan
