API rate limit based upon app or calls from an ip address

We have two shopify apps on the same server. Is the api rate limit based upon each app or upon all the api calls originating from our server ip address?

It's based on each apps auth token.

Further some product endpoints now have limits based on the store with variants >50k 

Contact your partner manager for official clarification.

 

If your risking hitting rate limits take hard look at moving to graphql especially if your making a lot of nested|interdependent calls. In some cases Graphql can let you do single calls replacing a handful of calls and drastically improve performance in exchange for a refactor.

Hey there,

 

The API rate limit is per app and per store (and Plus stores have a higher rate limit).
