Error code 429 using next_page_token despite timer

Hello all, we are trying to collect meeting details for a period of time and to browse through the pages results to get all the data we need.
When trying to ready through the pages using next_page_token the API is returning a code 429 for too many API calls despite using a time to make only 1 API call per second. How to get around this issue ?

{“code”:429,“message”:“You have reached the maximum per-minute rate limit for this API. Try again later.”}

Which App Type (OAuth / Chatbot / JWT / Webhook)?
API call on using JWT

Which Endpoint/s?

How To Reproduce (If applicable)
Steps to reproduce the behavior:
Execute the code below with an active token

    $from = "2021-12-05"
    $to = "2022-01-05"
    $GetMeetingsUsage = Invoke-RestMethod "$from&to=$to"  -Method 'GET' -Headers $headers #-TimeoutSec 0.015

in this example, total records = 14015

and page count = 47

then running the below to browse through all results pages, using a time to make 1 API call per second

            $n = $n + 1
            $nextpagetoken = $GetMeetingsUsage.next_page_token
            Clear-Variable -name GetMeetingsUsage
            $GetMeetingsUsage = Invoke-RestMethod "$from&to=$to&next_page_token=$nextpagetoken"  -Method 'GET' -Headers $headers
            $GrandTotalMeetings = $GrandTotalMeetings + $GetMeetingsUsage.meetings
            Start-Sleep 1
            Write-Host "page " $n " token : " $GetMeetingsUsage.next_page_token
         until ($null -eq $nextpagetoken)

throwing the code 429 despite the 1 second timer between each API call.

it seems the script is able to execute 33 API calls before returning error 429

Thanks in advance for your help

@ClementC Thanks for reaching out!

It looks like this is happening because the List Meetings Dashboard API has a Resource Intensive Rate Limit label:

If you don’t need to query for live meetings, you can try using the List Meetings API which has a Medium rate limit label.

I hope that helps! Let me know if you have any questions.

Hello Max, thank you for jumping in.
Unfortunately, the purpose of this work is to be able to measure how many minutes of meeting are done with our CRC video codecs (filtering all meetings where the meeting details attribute has_sip -eq $true)
We cannot accomplish the same using the List Meetings API (or using the “get crc usage” API)
Would you have a suggestion how we can build automatic reports of the Zoom meeting usage that includes CRC/video codec devices ?
Thank you
