Project names have to be unique within the same resource across all custom features.
|Item||Request type||Maximum limit|

|Authoring API||GET||100 per minute|
|Prediction API||GET/POST||1,000 per minute|
|Document size||--||125,000 characters. You can send up to 25 documents as long as they collectively do not exceed 125,000 characters|
If you need to send larger files than the limit allows, you can break the text into smaller chunks of text before sending them to the API. You use can the chunk command from CLUtils for this process.
