Organizaton Installation Ratelimit Calculation


The docs for the Github Apps rate limits state that organization installations will get the minimum of 5000 requests per hour plus additional requests based on the users and repository count.

I don’t really understand based on the provided information the calculation for the maximum requests per hour for an installation. I created a private application and installed it into our company organization. We have ~280 people and ~800 repos. My maximum limit is 12500.

How is the limit calculated?


@Larusso the numbers we posted on the documentation are accurate, but as of right now we have a cap as to how high we’re willing to let the rate limit go for a singular installation due to performance concerns.


Thanks. For a minute I thought I’m stupid for not getting the documentation.
Any reason not to mention this in the documentation? I mean you just say true==false here.
