is Batch operations is supported by BOX?

I'm trying to integrate BOX using sdk. I came to know that there is rate limiting. Then i started to search whether BOX supports batch api operations. I found lot of forum questions where i found that box does not support batch operations which were two to three years old.

 

Can i get updated status whether BOX supports batch operations or not?

 

If it supports please provide me the related links to go through.

Hi @Bharath_N_V — I'm Matt, one of the engineers on the Box SDK team.  Box doesn't have a Batch API that would help you avoid rate limits.  Our API rate limits are put in place to protect our backend infrastructure, and even if multiple operations were submitted in a batch, they would still result in the same amount of work for the backend and would be subject to rate limits.

@Bharath_N_V No, there is not an API that will allow you to batch various different requests to avoid rate limits.
