Here are a few updates to this post.
Based on the feedback from the customers and partners, we have decided to postpone the inclusion of the integration tasks in API credits to August 31, 2021. We have started working on the below tool support:
1. Notification - Default email notifications to the admins when the APIs' daily limit reaches 80, 90, and 100%. The support to customize the number of notifications you wish to receive, the usage percentage after which you want to receive emails, or the recipients of the email will be provided later, in phases.
You will receive emails based on the usage in the last 24 hours. For example, if you reached the 80% limit and received an email at 10AM the previous day, you will receive the next email only after 10AM the next day if you reach your limit again.
However, in the same 24-hour period, if you reach the limit of 90% from 80%, you will receive another email.
2. API Dashboard - Instead of providing a separate dashboard for integration tasks, we will show the credits usage of the integration tasks(per function) on the API dashboard itself. Clicking on each function's name will give you the name and the credit consumed by every integration task used in that function.
After the above two enhancements are released, we will provide you with time until August 31, 2021, to analyze the usage. During this time, besides receiving email notifications upon reaching the limit, the API dashboard will also show the credits consumed by integration tasks, but they will not be deducted in your API credit limit. These stats are solely for you to understand the impact of integration tasks on your daily API limit and take the necessary steps before this change goes live.
