X-Cache: Error from cloudfront during REST call

Hello fellow Mendix devs, I am currently trying to get the PostalCodeAPI working but i get this cloudfront error Response content for GET request to https://api.postcodeapi.nu/v2/addresses/?postcode=2512XD&number=2 HTTP/1.1 429 Content-Type: application/json Content-Length: 32 Connection: keep-alive Date: Wed, 09 Jan 2019 15:37:22 GMT x-amzn-RequestId: 752e08fb-1424-11e9-987b-b520283e0988 x-amz-apigw-id: TPg_8FaKjoEFojg= X-Amzn-Trace-Id: Root=1-5c361532-117e92c0f6698368c756835e;Sampled=0 X-Cache: Error from cloudfront Via: 1.1 5515890e7ce0a4b8eaa000066bc1c8f7.cloudfront.net (CloudFront) X-Amz-Cf-Id: wkpNujIR9xPS8K_3xOqfO6x0fPChfG5YX9PLsXJz8LYmrp-EcyHOpg== {"error":"Rate limit exceeded."} I was hoping maybe one of you have encountered this before. The weird thing is that in a different app with the same key we do get a correct JSON back.   Kind regards,   Wouter

Hi Wouter,

  It looks like the error you are seeing is "Rate Limit Exceeded" from CloudFront, which I suspect is what postcodeapi is using to prevent ddos attacks.  Maybe that is something you need to bring up with their support team?  I am not sure the issue is living in Mendix or with your REST call.
