Microsoft Graph API is giving me throttling error to the very first request of the day


  • I can send the same request with 5 minutes apart and the first one will send me the following response:

    HTTP/1.1 429
    Cache-Control: private
    Transfer-Encoding: chunked
    Content-Type: application/json
    Retry-After: 300

     "error": {
     "code": "UnknownError",
     "message": "",
     "innerError": {
     "request-id": "983c8fa6-5b66-4ffa-b1ad-33fc0ec25a63",
     "date": "2017-03-10T10:11:01"

    The second one is accepted with a code 201. This has baffled me and I cannot find respective documentation to "Unknown error". Any clues to what is happening?

  • Greetings,

    This looks like something we need to investigate further.  Can you create a support incident through the office portal so that we can gather some additional details and start an investigation?
