Cloud service rate-limiting

Cloud storage providers like Dropbox and Google Drive limit the amount of requests that can be made during a specific time period.

Transmit 5 has been designed to not exceed these limits, however, in some cases a service may require an additional login mid-operation in the case that too many requests are received.

This issue potentially affects the following services:

  • Amazon Drive
  • Box
  • Dropbox
  • Google Drive
  • Microsoft OneDrive
  • Microsoft OneDrive for Business

Please Note: Due to these rate-limiting restrictions, connections to the services listed above are capped at two simultaneous connections. Adjusting this limit via the Transmit preferences is not supported at this time.
