Limit on cloning repositories


#1

Hey,

is there any rate limit on the number of cloned repositories for a Github App? If so, what is it?

Best regards

Ben

By rate limit do you mean how many repositories a GitHub App can clone per minute/hour?

Yes exactly.

There are no hard rate limits on cloning, so you are free to clone as much as you’d like. Still, we’d like to ask you to clone at a reasonable pace. Cloning a few (2-3-4) repositories in parallel is okay, cloning a 100 repositories in parallel is not and can be detected as abusive behavior by our automated measures.
