API rate limits

Most of the functionalities of VersionEye are available via the API as well. The VersionEye API becomes more and more popular. There are already a lot of plugins and add ons build on top of the VersionEye API. You can find a list of this plugins on the API page at the bottom.


In the last couple months the API responded to more than 17 Million API requests. Because of the growing traffic I introduced some rate limits.

  • 10 calls per hour for non authenticated calls.
  • 50 calls per hour for authenticated calls with an API key.

If you want to have a higher rate limit please write a email to support@versioneye.com with your use case.
