Laravel 9 - Rate Limiting: Global and for Guests/Users

You can limit some URL to be called a maximum of 60 times per minute, with throttle:60,1:

Route::middleware('auth:api', 'throttle:60,1')->group(function () {
    Route::get('/path', function () {
        // code here
    });
});
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

But also, you can do it separately for public and for logged-in users:

// maximum of 10 requests for guests, 60 for authenticated users

Route::middleware('throttle:10|60,1')->group(function () {
    // code here
});
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Also, you can have a DB field users.rate_limit and limit the amount for specific user:

Route::middleware('auth:api', 'throttle:rate_limit,1')->group(function () {
    Route::get('/path', function () {
        // code here
    });
});
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
