HTTP API commands are being sent to the bot by calling a special HTTP URL:

The request can be either GET or POST. Read the Doing HTTP API Calls article for more info.


You can compose and test your queries using SmartBots API Testing Suite:

API frequency restrictions may be applied for numerous subsequent queries (especially messaging ones: im, send_group_im etc). We suggest maintaining about 3 seconds delay between the subsequent queries since SL also caps delivery at this rate.

SmartBots API query returns the following error message when you hit the frequency restriction: Frequent API requests throttled
