I have just had my submission approved for the Strava Developer program. In the e-mail, it included that I now have rate limits that are higher than they previously were, which is great. However, it included that my "athlete capacity" is now only 99 - whereas previously it was unlimited for all API applications.
I already have 96 athletes connected - you can see how many you have once approved. This limit of 99 is far too low and I am extremely concerned. It reads as though my application, among many others, has/have just been broken for new users.
I have a bunch of questions:
The e-mail contents I'm referring to:
Moving forward, here’s what you can expect for your app: Overall Rate Limit: allows for 600 requests every 15 min, with up to 6,000 requests per day Read Rate Limit: allows for 300 requests every 15 min, with up to 3,000 requests per day Athlete Capacity: 99
My app has been approved as well with exactly the same limits. I previously had a limit of 30,000 requests per day so it looks like they are setting a standard amount. The new limit makes it almost impossible for my app to work under the T&C of the api as I am caching man y segments to improve performance but these need to be refreshed every 7 days to comply. How do we reach out to request a change?
