Tyk rate limiting for the whole api


I am looking at the Tyk documentation on rate limiting. What I am trying to rate limit is an open (keyless) api. In the docs it looks like I should need to convert that to an api that has at least one key not expiring to be able to rate limit an open api. Is that right?


I have also looked at this post:

Not sure if the feature to rate limit to the whole api is planned for some specific date or not. The alternative of having the api proxy to the same api with an injected key does not look very attractive to me in terms of latency.

Many thanks,


I’m happy to say that this functionality planned in the next milestone and we are actively working on it!
