I am using an automated system for creating and updating Podio items using the PHP client.
Today, having set the automation running I was calling item->create approximately every 15 seconds.
On call number 126 which was 31 minutes and 32 seconds after the first, I got the rate_limit error.
I had used item->create & item->update earlier in the day, but I would have expected them to have timed out before this.
So I am confused - what is the exact limit? I had thought it was 250 per hour and had set my timing according.
Does app authentication count as a rate-limited step?
While I am in an unusual circumstance today of setting up a new system which requires many new items, I still want to understand the limits so I can be sure to avoid them in the future.
