Prevent multiple requests at the exact same time

Hi, Is there a way to prevent two API requests to the same URL at the same time?

Yes of course. By using any queue management you can prevent it.

Thank you! Is there any queue management in strapi? Or can u give me an example of how I could build one?

There is no queue in strapi as far i know. you can use bull queue GitHub - OptimalBits/bull: Premium Queue package for handling distributed jobs and messages in NodeJS.</ti. Read the documents.
here is a example of a queue
const myRateLimitedQueue = new Queue(‘rateLimited’, {

  redis: {

    host: '',

    port: 6379


  limiter: {

      max: 1,

      duration: 10



const data = {

 header : "header"


await myRateLimitedQueue.add(data);

async function getCheck() {

return new Promise((resolve, reject) => {

  return myRateLimitedQueue.process(async (job) => {





var condition= await getCheck();
