Rate Limits and Quotas


The following does not apply to customers running on the Superblocks On-Premise Agent (OPA).

For users on Superblocks Cloud, tier based service limits are in place to optimize product performance and stability. If you need higher service limits for your use case, please reach out to our support team to request a limit increase.

* The step size refers to an API step's output (return value + console logs). You can still process in excess of these limits within a language step as long as the data is not returned. Note, API steps return serialized JSON which is included in this limit.

Returning data from the Application backend to the frontend


The following applies only to organizations whose payload quota is set at > 10 MB.

When returning data from backend API steps to the Application frontend, it is recommended to keep it below 10MB for performance reasons. Returning more data could cause degraded performance for end-users. This may require the use of server-side pagination to limit the payload of the data.

Rate limits

API steps are rate limited. The throughput of steps cannot exceed the following limits.
