Discord Rate Limiting Zap?

I have a zap set up to trigger on a message being sent in a specific Discord channel but every now and then I get an email saying the zap has errored citing “Being rate limited” I’m guessing from Discord. Here is the full error:

Trigger partner failure: {"status":429,"headers":{"content-type":"application/json"},"content":"{\n \"global\": true, \n \"message\": \"You are being rate limited.\", \n \"retry_after\": 33\n}\n","request":{"url":"[url removed by me]}}

 

Does anyone know why this is happening and how to fix it? It doesn’t seem like it’s breaking the zap or shutting it off so not a huge deal but I just want to make sure the zap doesn’t miss a message because it’s being rate limited. 

 

Thanks!

Hi @innate 

Good question.

Check your Zap Runs to see which Zap step and thus which app is returning the error.

Each app has different limits to abide by when using their API which their Zap app is built upon.

Hi, @innate !

How many times is your Zap triggering from Discord messages a day? Looking at Discord’s API, it looks like there’s a limit of 50 calls per second.
