All API requests are authenticated through API Token, so you need to pass your API Token through
“token”: “YOUR_API_TOKEN”,variable, this should be passed along with all API requests body in JSON format.
We don't use header authentication, so it's not required to pass a header, all data should be passed in the body.
All the API requests to any endpoints are rate limited to 90 requests per minute from one project, if we are getting more than 90 requests per minute then you will receive an error "429" and those messages or requests will be dropped in our firewall level and won't be showing in your Picky Assist Platform
The Admin will also receive an email notification with the Subject "Urgent Rate Limit Reached - Picky Assist" whenever we throttle your request because of the rate limit. Kindly note that in order to avoid cluttering your email inbox we will send emails once every 30 minutes only even if we drop your message continuously.
