Error code 508

Hello, I am currently testing the dashboard API, what situation does 508 Error mean?

Error handling in Meraki developoper hub does not contain information about 508 error.


It is not a case that occurs in a particular API, and even the same API appears intermittently on my application.

The HTTP response codes are standardised, 508 is 'loop detected'. Indicating a service error or resource limit. I'd guess it'd be a transient error unless something is broken.


I don't think I've ever seen a 508 response from Meraki in years of heavy API use. Have you anything in your code that could issue high volumes of calls in a short period without following the rate limiting process?


Otherwise, if you are getting these responses only on one org, maybe open a support case to check if there's an internal problem specific to the org.
