Thanks for reaching out. Happy to help!

That error message is not coming from Pipedream, but rather the service you’re integrating with.

I believe you’re trying to connect with OpenAI, please login to your account there and verify your usage limit hasn’t been reached.

Hi @jlgiamatteo,

I’m sorry to hear that you’re encountering a “429 Too Many Requests” error. This error indicates that you’ve exceeded the quota for your current plan. To resolve this issue, you can either wait for your quota to reset or consider upgrading your plan.

so is this referred to openai quota or pipedream quota? cause I’m having the same issue and I don’t understand what’s causing it. It seems to me I have credits for both.

Hi @garmage

The error is most likely coming from the OpenAI API, not from Pipedream. Pipedream has a much much higher rate limit.

Credit exhaustion is not the same as hitting a rate limit.

Check the OpenAI documentation and your dashboard there to see which rate limit you qualify for under your account subscription type.

thank you pierce. Yes it was. I wasn’t aware that since the last time i’ve used that, openai changed their way of paying for the apis, now it needs to buy credit to use those… I’ve lost an hour to understand this :frowning:
