Use the Optimization API to run adhoc or recurring optimizations, create optimization recipes, and query the results of optimization runs. The Optimization API can handle larger data sets than the Planr API and can devote more time to finding the most optimal schedule.

Legacy optimization deprecation

Legacy optimization (functionality deprecated in Planr) can also be utilized for adhoc and recurring optimizations, however, it is no longer the default in the web-app, nor is it recommended to be used through the API.

Route Optimization is instead the recommended functionality for optimization and is in active development.

Optimization request limits

Optimization has a hard limit of 2000 jobs and 200 resources per request. Smaller requests may yield better results and we recommend reducing the number of items in a request where possible.
