API Payload Limits
To prevent APIs from being overloaded by the payload size, we have introduced API payload limits to regulate the API usage per tenant. The use by client applications or background job threads that make multiple high-volume calls continuously to extract or import data, or update can cause performance issues.
The following list provides the overview of the proposed maximum number of items per document for various APIs:
|API Name||Technical Name||Maximum Number of Items per Document|
|Provider API to Create Freight Request for Quotation||TransportationOrderQuotationCreateRequest_Out||700|
|Provider API to Cancel Freight Request for Quotation||TransportationOrderQuotationCancellationRequest_Out||700|
|Provider API to Notify Freight Quotation||TransportationOrderQuotationNotification_Out||700|
|Provider API to Create Freight Order for Subcontracting||TransportationOrderRequest_Out||700|
|Provider API to Cancel Freight Order for Subcontracting||TransportationOrderCancellationRequest_Out||700|
|Provider API to Create Freight Booking||TransportationOrderBookingRequest_Out||700|
|Provider API to Cancel Freight Booking||TransportationOrderBookingCancellationRequest_Out||700|
|Provider API for Freight Booking Waybill Notification||TransportationOrderBookingWaybillNotification_Out||700|
|Provider API to Create Freight Order for Settlement||TransportationOrderRequest_Out||700|
|Provider API to Confirm Freight Order Dispute Charges||TransportationOrderChargeElementConfirmation_Out||700|
If a document reaches the maximum item count, the system rejects the document.
