Notifications for using Shifter API

With Shifter API, you can integrate Shifter and CI services such as Circle CI or Netlify, or other applications you operate.

Limits are placed on the number of requests from external servers or services.

In order to provide a more stable WordPress and deployment environment, we will be limiting the number of calls per day to some URLs in the Shifter API.

Please note that calls with a response status in the HTTP 500 range due to problems with the API server, such as system failures, are not included in this restriction.
