Users of publisher front end are subject to the default course-discovery rate throttling of 100 req/min. Logged in as a non-staff user, I hit this limit when clicking from dashboard into course pages at what I thought to be a reasonable (not overly aggressive pace). I was blocked from using the tool (calls to the Organizations and Courses endpoints responded with the same 429 and messaging that I was blocked for close to an hour).
Gather details on common use cases such as what I was doing to determine roughly what rate of activity will hit the current rate limits for an individual user. Then consider changes we can/should make to the rate throttling to avoid killing our users' productivity. For instance, maybe a separate rate limit should be created for Publisher users?
Determine when / by whom the rate limiting was added
Determine a rough breakdown of what rate of PubFE activity currently will causes users to be rate limited
Implement changes, if any, to loosen this limit to more appropriately (and safely) fit users of PubFE. Assumption is we can simply bump up the single rate limit by some reasonable factor, e.g. from 100/min to 500/min
