Service Rate Limit Buckets

A Bucket defines the limit that should be enforced against the key it is associated with. A Rate Limit can have multiple buckets so that you can detect and stop attacks at different velocities.

Prerequisites:

  1. Create a Verification Service
  2. Create a Service Rate Limit

If you are just getting started with Rate Limits in Verify we recommend checking out our guide on Using Verify Service Rate Limits to Protect Your Application before diving into the API.
