3026416 - Maximum number of supported API calls - SuccessFactors API


You would like to know if there is a limit for multiple single calls from a third party system to a single SuccessFactors end-point, before the SF server crashes and/or closes the connection (maybe to prevent a hacker attack).


SAP SuccessFactors HXM Suite


There is no limit in code for API calls. But the best practice is as below:

Avoid Excessive Client Multithreading:

To prevent server overloads and ensure high availability, we recommend a maximum of 10 concurrent requests / threads per client. Multithreading is only allowed for editing single records. Do not use it for queries/read operations, massive upserts, or $batch operations.
