Exactly the same error (although no requests the last few days)

But there are no known API changes, my API keys are valid and everything SHOULD work well ;-)

Hi! Flickr staff here,

Curious what your user-agent is while making these requests? We made a change on our end yesterday that shouldn't of impacted users. Please let us know.

Thanks

Hi Wilson,

good to know that!

I use the 3rd party python library "flickrapi" which runs since years like charm.

Cause of the change in your backend the permission I gave myself via www.flickr.com/services/oauth/authorize?oauth_token=&... seems to be broken.

After I manually redo this one-time auth process, the application runs as usual again !

Problem solved here. :-)

Regards,
Steven

Glad it is sorted out for you.

Thanks for the reply. I see that we had to that user-agent as part of our bad list since it was affecting site performance. I will unblock it for now, but please do keep in mind the Terms of Service for our API.

Thanks

Hello, I had the same issue that started this week on Tuesday. I query the flickrapi with a key and secret and with my first request on Tuesday it generated a 429 error. Is this still an issue?

Hi there, what is your user-agent that you are using to request the API? Are the errors still happening for you?
