API Key

    Hi Charles,

    The intent is that the developer (you) sets up the API key, and that the end user (your users) authorises with this API key. This represents the relationship that the user is acting through your application. If it turns out that rate limits are an issue, and you're using the API appropriately, then you can apply for an increased rate limit.

    Best,
    Andreas

    Is there anyway to track an API keys usage?

    There are two HTTP headers on the response, X-Rate-Limit-Limit and X-Rate-Limit-Remaining, which you can inspect.

    I know about the HTTP headers but this is a deployed desktop application. Say we have a 100 Podio users all using our application with the same API key, how do I know what the total API usage is? Or if we are getting close to the limit?

    If you want to monitor usage from a desktop application, I suggest the application could send these metrics.
