If you exceed the limit and receive the following error:

There may also be a burst limit for optimalization purposes:
- GET requests: up to 10 requests per second

Number Requests for Report Endpoints
For Reports endpoints, the request (GET) limit is 30 requests per minute.
Data Preview Unavailable
If there is no data preview after clicking on Test Data, there might be a problem with your source configuration. The most common causes are:
- Date range: Try a smaller date range. You can load the rest of your data afterward through our manual data load function.
- Insufficient permissions: Please make sure your account has at least admin-level permissions.
