I’ve been running into an issue with creating categories via the API. It seems there is a limit, but that limit doesn’t seem to be customizable nor does it seem to have a setting to disable it anywhere.
The error I get is:
We have a daily limit on how many times that action can be taken. Please wait 17 seconds before trying again.
The amount of seconds seems to always be under 20 seconds, but never accurate as it states that it is a daily limit and I’ve tried within a minute of the last attempt. I’ve also tried adjusting ALL rate limits under the admin dashboard to 1000+, but none of them seem to affect category creation.
The only available rate limits on the dashboard: max topics, private messages, likes, bookmarks, flags, edits, invites, topic invitations, topics, prints, and logins.
I’m using the GitHub - discourse/discourse_api: Ruby API for Discourse for it, which worked fine until the unspecified rate limit was hit.
Am I missing something? This isn’t coming from nginx either, as the message is from Discourse and the rate limiting template for nginx has been disabled.
