Kontent technical limits

Download PDF

This page lists our current technical and subscription limits. The technical limits are set so that most customers will never come across them.

In case you reach any of the limits, there are typically ways to get under the limits. It usually involves optimizing the apps, integrating another service, or rethinking the Kontent settings. We offer Professional Services that will help you with such adjustments.
