Avoiding Throttling with a Microsoft OneDrive for Business Instance

In order to stabilize their platform's performance, OneDrive for Business has implemented throttling, which can, under specific circumstances, restrict traffic and limit your instance's ability to perform user actions or make concurrent calls. To best keep your instance from being improperly throttled, you must properly "decorate" your traffic by including a User Agent string in a CSOM or REST API call. This lets OneDrive recognize your instance as being in line with its best practices. For more information about throttling with OneDrive, see SharePoint's best practices to handle throttling.

Axway AMPLIFY provides an optional User Agent field if you are authenticating through the UI, and an optional user.agent configuration parameter if you are authenticating through API.
