View Monthly API Calls with a New Usage-Based Entitlement

Your org can now exceed its API daily request limit without being blocked (subject to system health). A hard cap is in place to safeguard platform resources. A new usage-based entitlement shows the total number of API requests aggregated over 30 days.

Where: This change applies to Enterprise Edition, Performance Edition, Unlimited Edition, and Professional Edition with API access enabled.

When: This entitlement will be rolled out gradually over the next few months.

Why: By seeing a monthly view of your org’s API calls, you can manage your API request consumption more effectively. And because requests that exceed the daily limit are allowed to proceed, your org won’t be blocked by unexpected spikes in workload.

How: To view your usage of this entitlement:
  1. From Setup, enter Company Information in the Quick Find box, then select Company Information.
  2. At the bottom of the Company Information page, view the API Request Limit per Month information in the Usage-Based Entitlements list.
