Hi there,

Spaces have the following request rate limits:

  • 750 requests (any operation) per IP address per second to all Spaces on an account.

  • 240 total operations per second to any individual Space.

  • 150 combined PUT, POST, COPY, DELETE, and LIST operations per second to any individual Space. We may further limit LIST operations if necessary under periods of high load.

  • 5 PUT or COPY requests per 5 minutes to any individual object in a Space.

Can you verify if you are hitting any of those limits by any chance?

For more information on the limits, you could check out the documentation here:



Hi @913b0ec6ca14-478f-a425-52d13a,

Have you checked the log? It usually provides detailed error information.

Keep us informed ;)
