As previously announced in this blog post, from now on, there are new limits on the number of indexes you can create simultaneously. This change is dictated by the aim to constantly improve the resiliency and overall performance of the Document service, which is a shared environment.

From now on, you can create:

  • a maximum of five indexes simultaneously, per client
  • a maximum of 20 indexes simultaneously, per <%- @partial('document_storage') %>

When you exceed one or both of these limits, you receive a 429 Too many requests response from the Document service. In that case, you must wait until the current index build operation ends and clears the index creation pool.

You can minimize the risk of exceeding the limits by planning your indexes ahead of time, and creating them for empty or small collections, instead of building an index for a massive data set that could take a very long time to process.
