API Call (polling)

Polling, or repeated API calls, is a common method to fetch updates. However, in Xumm, it's not the recommended approach due to rate limits.

Instead of polling, consider these efficient alternatives:

  • Webhooks: Once a payload is resolved, Xumm can send a WebHook to your platform, eliminating the need for constant polling. Learn more: Webhooks.

  • Websocket Subscription: Use Websocket to receive live status updates. Learn more: Websocket.

Excessive polling can lead to your application being temporarily rate limited, disrupting your service. If your application has been rate limited, you will receive a notification email later the same day on the e-mail address entered in the application details in the Xumm Developer Console.
