Exciting news! We just released the
FBSelf.usage object to public beta. You can use it starting from the 2023-04-04 release of FlowBoost.next (
FBSelf.usage is available in any FlowBoost webhook, but you probably want a separate webhook just to check usage. Run that ’hook once per day via a dummy/resource lead, then Send Alert if you’re running low. (You can also run it ad hoc from Postman, of course.)
The object returns a few pieces of info, which should be self-explanatory:
Usage is updated “lazily” to preserve performance, so the call count may be up to 20 minutes behind.
You don't need to upgrade all your hooks to
flowboost$next and probably don't want to — just the one usage hook needs to be on
flowboost$next. Others can stay on
We typically push
$current on the first of every month, so this feature will be GA on May 1st.
