OCI API Gateway is a managed service that gives you the ability to deploy, manage, secure, control, and monitor your whole API ecosystem in one place. This will also give you one single point of entry for all clients.

There are many use cases where a scheduler is needed to make constant calls to a Function — maybe to keep that function alive for better response time, or maybe the function is a listener to the streaming service and you want to execute it every 30 seconds or so…


You probably ended up here because you have a script that makes many API calls to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and some of your requests fail due to an HTTP 429 TooManyRequests error.

Why do you get those errors?
