Amazon API Gateway usage plans now allow you to throttle requests for individual methods at different rates by configuring method level throttling.

Usage plans allow you to grant customers access to selected APIs at specific request rates and quotas. With method level throttling now included in usage plans, you can configure throttling (rate and burst limits) on individual client API keys for different API methods. This enables you to set more granular access controls to an API based on its use case.

You can configure method level throttling in an API’s usage plan using the AWS Management Console, AWS CLI, or AWS SDKs. Visit our documentation to learn more about method level throttling in Amazon API Gateway.

Method level throttling for API Gateway is available in all regions where API Gateway is available. To see where API Gateway is available, review the AWS region table. For more information about API Gateway, visit our product page.
