  • There is unlimited number of API calls per month.
  • Only 1 request can be processed at time.
  • The time limit for queued requests is 15 seconds. The maximum number of queued API requests is 6. Every request above this number will be immediately dropped.

Remember, there are currently two versions of Woodpecker API – 1.0 and 2.0. Woodpecker API 2.0 for now covers different endpoints, but remember – this version is under ongoing development.
