I’ve recently noticed that the v4 API has started returning HTTP 403 errors with the following message, even though we’re not approaching the actual rate limit.
“You have triggered an abuse detection mechanism. Please wait a few minutes before you try again.”
The query in question posted to another thread Request: Improve API so it's faster to pull large data sets
The thing is that we’re just making a search request for issues, reading a few pages of results and making some follow up requests to read timeline events for some of the issues. Nothing special really.
I’ve already removed all concurrency and now I’m tweaking the timings to make our client go slower to see if that would help.
It would be great if you can relax the abuse detection mechanism so that regular integrations are not affected.
