Secondly Limit issue


Is it possible that there is a sporadic bug on HubSpot’s side with the secondly limit? Last night there was a period of time that we were getting errors like:

Unable to GET to HubSpot /companies/v2/companies/XXXXXXX (429): message: the server responded with status 429 body: {"status":"error","message":"You have reached your secondly limit.","errorType":"RATE_LIMIT","correlationId":"57b30aa1-cf5b-4172-982c-a3c69d5f4874","groupName":"publicapi:oauth-secondly:XXXX:XXXXX","policyName":"SECONDLY","requestId":"ca08d815a2a9f98a434f71f686313fbe"}

This happened for a period of time a few weeks ago as well. No out of the ordinary processing was happening for us either time and it doesn’t seem likely that we were pushing 10 req/sec.


Hi @homerlex,

I’m not aware of any issues with our rate limiting system, but I’d be happy to take a look. Can you send me the Hub ID of the portal in which you were seeing these errors?


we're getting the same error(secondly rate limit) and it's very unlikely that we make 10 request per second. I have also checked the api logging on our hubspot account and I could not find all these requests.
Please help



Hi guys,
apology if I write again, is there anything I can look into?



Hi @pie,

If you don't have some explicit request rate limiting on your end, my guess would be that your service just happened to make 10 requests in a given second at some point. I can take a look to see if there's anything out of the ordinary, though; can you direct message me your Hub ID?


Hi Derek,
I have sent an email with our hubId

thanks a lot


i faced the same problem :frowning:
Can I reach you out with Hub ID as well?

We checked api logging and seems it's clear
