About the Apigee management APIs

To view the available management APIs, use the left navigation bar or the API index page

If you're a new user, check out the API reference getting started.

Each organization is limited to the following management API call rates:

  • 10,000 calls per minute for organizations on paid plans
  • 600 calls per minute for trial organizations

HTTP status codes 401 and 403 do not count against this limit. Any calls that exceed these limits return a 429 Too Many Requests status code.

Do not call the management APIs from inside API proxies. The management API is used for administrative management purposes, not API flow logic. Due to longer-lived cache entries on the management API servers, you may not see updated data immediately in your proxy flows, particularly if you are doing quick writes and then reads. Coding workarounds for this behavior can impact your proxies' performance.

Use policies or Node.js in API proxies instead.
