This document outlines the restrictions imposed on the rate at which you can make requests to the Meraki Dashboard API. The rate limits mentioned in this document specify the maximum number of API requests you can make within a certain time frame.

Rate Limits

Per source IP address

Each source IP address that initiates API requests is allocated a call budget of 100 requests per second, regardless of the number of API clients operating from that IP address.

Per Organization

  • Each Meraki organization has a call budget of 10 requests per second.
  • For instance, a total of 10 additional requests are allowed in the first second, so a maximum of 30 requests in the first 2 seconds.
  • Rate limiting technique is based on the token bucket model.
  • Furthermore, a concurrency limit of 10 concurrent requests per IP is enforced.
