Compute Corpus Size API Definition

The Compute Corpus Size endpoint lets you view the amount of quota consumed by a corpus. This capability is useful for administrators to track and monitor the amount of usage for specific corpora. For example, you manage multiple tenants and determine that a user consumed too much quota and you might decide to disable the API keys associated with a specific corpus or corpora.


Check out our interactive API Playground that lets you experiment with this endpoint to compute the corpus size.
