"Rate limit reached" but header say the opposite

When I call https://mydomain.auth0.com/oauth/token

I got all the time:
error 500
{“error”:“server_error”,“error_description”:“Rate limit reached”}

However headers say:

I have not call the api for an hour but still get the issue.

What is wrong?

Hi @stefdelec

This is probably not Auth0, it is probably a proxy in the middle. Auth0’s rate limit exceed is

  • 429 HTTP Error (Too Many Requests)

This is a 500. That would explain why the rate limit headers don’t help you - it is happening somewhere else.
