About rate limits for license-based APIs

I have a question regarding rate limiting for license-based APIs.

If the rate limits for license-based APIs are exceeded, will an error occur? I would like to know the specific behavior when these limits are exceeded. In a previous response, it was mentioned that there would be no error, but a notification for a plan upgrade. I would like more details on what happens when the limits are exceeded.


If api total calls or other metics are exceed, your sales representative will send you communication to start the conversations of upping your limit or purchasing more calls. In the interim, we will not turn off access to the API, but we will true up after the fact during subsequent purchases.
