429 Too Many Requests - IP logs disabled - discourse can see only

For privacy, GDRP compliance, data collection minimization purposes, I’ve disabled IP logs on my server. Discourse doesn’t get to see any IP addresses.

      proxy_set_header X-Real-IP;
      proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For;

This is confirmed using discourse admin. No IPs can be seen for my user profile in admin mode.
Is discourse behind a reverse proxy? Yes. Behind nginx.

Also my forum has an onion domain mirror where it would be impossible to get any IP addresses.

That used to work great but now I am getting more and more error messages.

429 Too Many Requests

I guess discourse uses some kind of IP based rate limiting? But shouldn’t that exclude How to disable this kind of rate limiting?

Remove the web.ratelimited template at the top of you app.yml file and rebuild.
