Is it possible to rate limit AWS Rekognition?


I am slightly worried that it can accidentally do way more requests than expected. At some point I had 2k requests in a few minutes, and I don't understand where they came from (maybe tests).

Anyways, is it possible to have rate limit on those to prevent accidents?

Hi User,

You may put an API Gateway in front of your rekognition endpoint to throttle requests and put in place a rate limit. Please refer to this guide on how to make the configuration on API Gateway: Guide

Hope this helps!
